"To be or not to be, suicide, depression, quantum time, free will vs. fate, Zen Buddism: this book is about a LOT of STUFF. And I love that it brings all of these to the table with such humility and subtle storytelling. My description probably make..." Read more of this review »
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
"I waited a couple of months to write this review because I couldn't decide between 4 or 5 stars. I decided to see how the novel remained with me; would it stay? Well, it does stay with me. And it inspires me to read more from Donna Tartt, The Gold..." Read more of this review »
Bleeding Edge by Thomas Pynchon
"Just started it but the rapid-fire word-play of it and the dry wit make me think of Crying of Lot 49. There is a lot to absorb and so it isn't an easy read but so far I am enjoying it.

“People can read books and watch children at the same time . . . Of course, both the reading of the books and the watching of the children will be performed in a way best described as half-assed. If you want to read your book in a non-half-assed way, you have to wait until your child is in kindergarten, or you must pay someone to watch your child while you read your book. Even then, however, you must not read the book in your home because the child will find you and jump on you and make reading impossible. You must leave your home, leave your yard, leave your street. You must drive to a cafe in town to read your book.

You must run and hide from your child as if your child is serving you a subpoena.

This is not insane. It does not make you bad if you do this.”
