A Writer’s Window

Travel Blog  •  Eva Holland  •  07.19.12 | 10:45 AM ET

The Paris Review is running a series of blog posts called “Windows on the World”—each one features a writer describing the view from their window, with an accompanying illustration, and so far, Binyavanga Wainaina (of “How to Write About Africa” fame), John Jeremiah Sullivan and other familiar names have joined in. Here’s a bit of Sullivan’s entry, from his home in Wilmington, N.C.:

This is the back view from my office. It’s raining. You can see a wall of the old garage (which still has a deep oil pit inside, from when more people worked on their own cars). The magnolia that hangs over the backyard is blooming. When it does, we open the door to the sleeping porch upstairs, and the whole house fills with the smell.
