too hot to sleep

and to be awake actually.
I finished the new Ann Patchett, due in October and as usual, she rarely puts a foot wrong in the novel Run.
A story of a politically connected blended family in present day Boston is told over a twenty four hour period, opening with a road accident during a snowstorm.
Run doesn't have the immediate impact of Bel Canto, but it's pleasures are a bit more cerebral, and revealed slowly and with great care.
It's representative of what's going to be a good fall, (if we get some rain around here)
