Edmund Davis-Quinn Edmund Davis-Quinn said: " Very good read and quick survey of Studs Terkel's classic book "Working." Very interesting how people got their jobs and what they like and don't like about them. Maybe I should give the main book a try again. "

"Seems very, very appropriate to read on the day I finally get to vote for Bernie Sanders. Makes me want to give the actual book a try. I have not gotten very far with Studs Terkel in the past." Apr 26, 2016 01:03PM

"Two days into it and already really enjoying Fingerstyle guitar. It definitely also makes you be conscious of your fretting with all of the arpeggios. I think fiddling with bass guitar helped too. Sounds very pretty with the flat strings on the Ibanez." Apr 01, 2016 04:02PM

Very good collection.

"I feel like if you are going to read about Kurt Vonnegut's thoughts you are best with his outstanding "A Man Without a Country." But these are great speeches nonetheless. I wonder if Mark Vonnegut's introduction may be the best part." Dec 18, 2015 04:48PM

Edmund Davis-Quinn and 2 other people liked Jane's review of Songs of Unreason:
Songs of Unreason by Jim Harrison
"Jim Harrison's poems are as free swinging as a wild river, and as rich in visible and under-surface life. They sweep things up and let go of them at the same time. You throw in your attention, and you never know what will rise to meet it. Almost e..." Read more of this review »
Songs of Unreason by Jim Harrison
"As the Bulgarians say, the moon is to blame.
Come to think of it that’s right. The moon
works in waves of power like the ocean

Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell
" Underrated and underread book. Still so accurate for so many, I bet. "

Mark Vonnegut
“What occurs to people when they read Kurt [Vonnegut] is that things are much more up for grabs than they thought they were. The world is a slightly different place just because they read a damn book. Imagine that.”
Mark Vonnegut

“I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely nothing that is useful to amass a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars, while millions of men and women who work all the days of their lives secure barely enough for a wretched existence.”
