Finished reading "WILLA CATHER: Collected Stories". It contains 19 short stories by the American writer Willa Cather. She was born in 1873 and died in 1947. I am impressed with her writing and will read her novels later.

The stories in this collection were originally published between 1905 and 1948. From them I got a glimpse of that period's culture in the US. Their main characters include opera singers, actors, painters and teachers. A few Nebraska farmers too. There are references to Carnegie Hall and the Metropolitan Opera House.

Finished "a sparrow falls" not bad reading, this would make a great movie. Just imagine a sparrow with wings outstretched as it glides along oblivious to its surroundings...BADDAM... into a tree...Blop... onto the ground...story done.

Well no, nothing like that...no sparrows...just great reading about man's greed and the height that he would go even stepping on his father to get to the top.
