#StillLifeWithBook is a little corner of our blog where contributors and staff share a snippet and a snapshot of their current reads.

meg willing | Assistant Production Editor / Designer  

Reading: Poems of Akhmatova selected, translated, and introduced by Stanley Kunitz with Max Hayward | Currently on page: 99 | Favorite lines so far: “Everything is plundered, betrayed, sold, / Death’s great black wing scrapes the air, / Misery gnaws to the bone. / Why then do we not despair? // By day, from the surrounding woods, / cherries blow summer into town; / at night the deep transparent skies / glitter with new galaxies.” | Book’s origin: I found this book the last time I moved, in a box of my old books. I might be borrowing it indefinitely from someone…?
