I'm reading The Virgin in the Garden by A.S. Byatt. I really love it. It's so smart and thoughtful about thinking and criticism and relationships and art and being a woman in the 50s and maybe about being British (I don't know, I'm just a Unitedstatesian). Plus, it has stuff about Elizabeth I who is my favorite.

What are you reading? What do you think of it? What should I read next?
