Finding a poem
This is my first attempt at finding a blackout poem in a newspaper. I used two stories from today's (Thursday, Nov. 21, 2013) New York Times to find the words that became "Divided."
Zoo Story by Thomas French
It’s hard for me to resist author Thomas French.
He got me again with the start of his book: “Eleven elephants. One plane. Hurtling together across the sky.”
Zoo Story, Life in the Garden of Captives, a nonfiction story that used the narrative devices of a novel, explores the issues of conservation of wild animals through the arrival of the elephants at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa, Florida, and the stories of other key players human and animal at the zoo.
Ghost Story by Jim Butcher
Jim Butcher and his character Harry Dresden wowed me again. Ghost Story, (Roc, 2011, pp 481) the 13th installment in Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files series, (not counting a collection of shorter works), opens sixth months after Changes with Harry Dresden at the crossroads.
Harry, Chicago's only wizard in the phone book, is asked (again) to risk it all, this time his very soul, to help his friends and to solve a crime that has robbed Harry of very important. It's not the first time Harry has been in between a rock and a hard place or had to recover something that he or a friend needs.
Proceed with caution: Spoilers ahead.
