About me
You say reading?

Try Helprin's Memoir of an Antproof Case for that long wkend or week off-just a great writer who finds you telling his protagonist that he is absolutely wrong about himself. A long read and a good story: I like both. This book 'feels' much like Middletons' the Earth is Enough-they seem like guy books but the women I know who have read them love them as well. Then again for the
slightly longer than a coffee lunch break try Tosches' Last Opium Den- you know the one in the jungle past the Mcdonalds. If you like encyclopedia reading try Tosches' Where Dead Voices Gather- an anthology of historic blues phrases as they appear in our now old 'rock n roll' days,especially interesting if you had played as I did
in bands thru the 60s-70s. But if you, like I do, love to fish there's this- Seth Normans' fly fisher's guide to Crimes of Passion. Norman's no normal man for sure.He is a fisherman-crazy as us all-buying licenses, tackle, boots, boats, motors all to travel next to the Fedx man thru wind, sleet and snow {mind you,every kind of fish sells in shops in most places}.
SOOO-it's like this: love of the Earth, love of the great story, love of music,past love, er, been thru the sixties, love books, lovin' it.
