I am still reading this. I am kind of enjoying the drawn out nature of my reading. It's always there for me if I feel anxious or can't sleep. Currently around 380 pages in. It's good. :)

Harpo Speaks. Like a lot of celeb autobios, he's heavy on the career details early, then things get more perfunctory as he devotes increasing ink to talking about friends, especially celebrity friends.
One of the interesting and frustrating things about it is that he wrote it at a time when a lot of knowledge was commonplace, so he makes assumptions that the reader is familiar with things that are, fifty years later, largely gone and forgotten.

Last week I (finally) read Thomas Friedman's The World is Flat and Michael Crichton's Next.
The week before that, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Trail by Cheryl Strayed.
Currently about half way through Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, by Jonathan Safran Foer. It reminds me of The World According to Garp.
Strange factoid. I hadn't thought of Garp for (probably) years, but I was musing about it last night. Then this morning the local news had a video clip of a guy with a camera on his headgear, who was skydiving, got kicked accidentally in the head by another diver after he jumped, and passed out, whereupon his friends noticed his limp form, used hand gestures to ask if he was okay, maneuvered through the sky to him, and opened his chute. He woke in time to properly land. He said he the incident would not cause him to stop skydiving.
At this point, the female news anchor expressed how crazy that was, and the male co-anchor said it was the idea that once your long-odds disaster happened, it was unlikely to happen again, and he mentioned that it was "based on" The World According to Garp, in which the family bought a house because it had already been hit by a plane, on the theory that such a thing, once it happened, could never happen again.
I hadn't heard anyone mention Garp in years, so it's synchronicity for me.

Yesterday I read The Help (I've already seen the movie), and all the dog stories out of a book called How I Learned to Speak Dog, but I skipped most of the stories about cats, ducks, horses and whatnot.

I read God's Other Son by Don Imus 20ish years ago. One memorable scene is the teen preacher being frustrated by yet another erection, during a conference with his elders. He whips it out and cuts it off by slamming a window on it. That could be a great movie scene. Later my opinion of Imus as an author was affected by the stupid bullshit he does on radio.

The Little Book by Selden Edwards. A complexly plotted novel that weaves different times (as do two main characters, who shift mysteriously back in time), this is rich with paradoxes and cycles -- in a sense, one can say the story has no beginning or end. Mixing fin de siècle Vienna with more modern times, featuring Sigmund Freud, Mark Twain, and Buddy Holly (not to mention an eight year old Adolf Hitler), and themes such as music, anti-Semitism in European politics, baseball, passion, introspection, and a Frisbee, this rich brew gives us characters wonderful and vile and love that is truly timeless in many ways. It drew me in slowly at first, but inexorably.

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. It's a chick lit relationship story, with a hundred more pages after a male writer would blow shit up and call it the end. She has an interview at bookslut.com, which sounds like my type of book site.

"Business in Great Waters" the U-boat wars 1916 -1945, by John Terraine. I like to read history books. I often think about what is was like for those men in the freighters, escorts and U-boats, to drown, swept below the depths of the ocean, with no hope of ever reaching the surface alive. No roses bloom on a sailor's grave.

Consider the Fork by Bee Wilson is a delightful history of the technology of cooking (chapters include Pots and Pans, Knives, Fire, Measurement, etc.) The book is sometimes a little meandering, but is a fascinating compendium of lore on the things involved in making meals. The writer has a fine eye for the telling detail and a charming style. I constantly found myself reading passages aloud to my wife as I went.

One of the most impressive studies of the period ever published. The book is stylishly written as well as superb scholarship. Easily the best book ever written on the subject.

This one,

Yes, it is a play on the moral panic-inducing book of the same name by Frederic Wertham, and many of the characters are inspired by/based on real-life players during the great comic book witch hunt of the 1950's. (The story and the actions of the characters beyond their background, however, are fiction.)
It is strange how many anti-adult industry busybodies use the same baseless arguments and dubious methodologies as Wertham and other latter-day witchfinder-generals used.

I'm not sure how much Rob Thomas put into this endeavor (maybe more than Guillermo Del Toro put into The Strain trilogy) but it is undeniably true to the spirit of the franchise and the voice of it's protagonist. If you wanted a sequel to the VM movie, here it is.

I've been reading it for a week and I can't remember the title or the author. That's how good it is.
It's a non-fiction book about Spain and the New World at the beginning of The Age of Exploration.

Pretty hard to beat Gaiman for stories about children taking on monsters to which their parents are simply oblivious these days. This one, a kind of an adult-level Coraline, is a masterful entry to the genre. Endearing, moving and genuinely scary.

I've just started this edition of Dante's "Inferno", translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and published in 1867. A poet translating a poet. Longfellow's end notes are very helpful in making sense of Dante's obscure (to the modern lay reader) references. Still, it is very tough going anyway. I may need to buy a good guide to the work to make it through with some sense of understanding:

Bundled in with Criterion's fine new edition of Peter Weir's movie version is this paperback copy of the novel which is as satisfying in it's dreamy mysteriousness and muted, underlying satire as the film itself. Highly recommended.

Still Life with Volkswagens. A Nazi engineer made a toy Volkswagen from the bones of Jews. With a windup the mini Eva Braun in the car blows the mini Hitler until he shoots diamond dust. The engineer proudly presented his gift of craftsmanship to Hitler, who then had the engineer executed. 50 years later, English Nazis found the toy and plan to use it as a talisman for political power.

The penultimate novel to be published during Leonard's lifetime follows a documentary filmmaker in Somali who becomes entangled with pirates and terrorists. Perhaps not the typical setting or subject matter for Leonard but plays out with all the velocity and twists necessary to keep fans happy.

I put a library hold on it in May, with 28 holds ahead of me, and numerous copies in the library system, so this is a long-awaited treat.

Stories of the movie industry before and just after the advent of the talkies. Such as how Vivien Leigh got the role of Scarlet O'Hara. Also when Greta Garbo began her career.
I believe the stories were made into films themselves.
I had this book many years ago. I decided to get it again and purchased one from E Bay.

It is not the best of MacLean's novels, certainly not anywhere near the level of Puppet on a Chain or When Eight Bells Toll. The punctuation is uneven and there are some inconsistencies; for example, he uses "car park" (British for "parking lot") and "parking lot" (American for "car park) mere sentences away from each other in the same short paragraph.
That being said, it is still an Alistair MacLean novel and it involves Formula One, of all things.
For me, Alistair MacLean + Formula One =
