Fellow Catherites,

In the spirit of Betty Jean's message about Kingsolver's new book, Cather's "A Wagner Matinee" is quoted in Belden C. Lane's latest book, The Great Conversation, the specific quote being, "the flat world of the ancients" (65).

Hello, good scholars:

Barbara Kingsolver's new book, How to Fly (In Ten Thousand Easy Lessons), contains a poem, "Insomniac Villannelle,"
in which Cather is mentioned twice, in good company.  (p. 75)
