Read from September 14 to 21, 2011

Yes, by that Steve Martin. It definitely has his voice, other than that it actually had Campbell Scott's voice, since, you know, he read it. But From the snippets of Martin's writing I've heard or read over hte years, as well as the movies he's written, like L.A. Story, it definitely felt like something he wrote. Except that, it didn't grab me. It was an excellent character study, but I don't much go for character studies, and the overall plot - moving up in the Upper East Side Art World, had exactly zero appeal to me. I gave up partway through, then went back to it. Recommendation? Meh.
