Books for Hammock and Tea Caravan

Besides a bright bouquet of café tables set out around it, my tea caravan would have bookshelves, well-stocked with summer reading—small, delicious bites.
  • George Booth’s Think Good Thoughts About a Pussycat (delightful dog cartoons)
  • Thurber’s Fables
  • Light-Gathering Poems
  • Marcovaldo
  • Virginia Woolf short-shorts
  • Sudden Fiction short-shorts
  • a whole shelf of Billy Collins
  • J.D. Salinger’s classic Nine Stories (with “DeDaumier Smith’s Blue Period” bookmarked)
  • Italian book of saints in art (a saint a day, in gorgeous color)
  • Rilke’s Book of Hours
  • The Pollen Path (Navajo stories)
  • Barbara Kingsolver’s essays, Small Wonder
  • Laurie Colwin’s Home Cooking
