Tad Richards Tad Richards said: " I find myself feeling that I ought to keep a journal of reading this, sort of like that old Henny Youngman racetrack joke, "My horse was so slow the jockey kept a diary of the trip." I'm on Chapter Eleven, and I still have no idea what this book is a ...more "

Upside Your Head! Rhythm and Blues on Central Avenue by Johnny Otis
Rate this book
Clear rating
An important memoir of a crucial and under-reported time and place in American music. Otis's point of view is particularly important, because he was there, and because he reports as both an insider and and outsider. Otis was born white, and never den ...more

My daughter had recommended a mystery novel called The Cutting Room, so I went looking for it, and found two, so I figured, what the hell, read both of them. I've more or less arbitrarily rated one four stars and one three, figuring that in some para ...more

Pronto, Riding the Rap, Fire in the Hole by Elmore Leonard
Rate this book
Clear rating
Two Raylan Givens novels, terse and satisfying in that unique Elmore Leonard way, and a collection of short stories, one of them featuring Raylan. I’d never read any of Leonard’s shots stories before, and he proves himself a master of that form, too.

Talk about watching a train wreck in slow motion. And like that slow motion train wreck, it’s a compulsive read. My advice- just keep imagining what’s the worst next thing you can imagine happening to the hero, and I guarantee you that every time, it ...more

A Day in the Death of Dorothea Cassidy by Ann Cleeves

A whodunnit with a really surprising yet completely fair twist at the end, this is also a remarkable series of sharply and subtly observed character studies by an omniscient narrator, as the murder of a too-conscientious and perhaps too-modern vicar’ ...more

George Eliot
“Poor fellow! I think he is in love with you.'

I am not aware of it. And to me it is one of the most odious things in a girl's life, that there must always be some supposition of falling in love coming between her and any man who is kind to her... I have no ground for the nonsensical vanity of fancying everybody who comes near me is in love with me.”
George Eliot

Edward Gorey
“If something doesn't creep into a drawing that you're not prepared for, you might as well not have drawn it.”
Edward Gorey, Ascending Peculiarity: Edward Gorey on Edward Gorey

Edward Gorey
“My mission in life is to make everybody as uneasy as possible. I think we should all be as uneasy as possible, because that's what the world is like.”
Edward Gorey, Ascending Peculiarity: Edward Gorey on Edward Gorey

John Cheever
“Oh, what can you do with a man like that? What can you do? How can you dissuade his eye in a crowd from seeking out the cheek with acne, the infirm hand; how can you teach him to respond to the inestimable greatness of the race, the harsh surface beauty of life; how can you put his finger for him on the obdurate truths before which fear and horror are powerless? The sea that morning was iridescent and dark. My wife and my sister were swimming--Diana and Helen--and I saw their uncovered heads, black and gold in the dark water. I saw them come out and I saw that they were naked, unshy, beautiful, and full of grace, and I watched the naked women walk out of the sea.”
John Cheever, The Stories of John Cheever

Tad Richards Glad to have you. Goodreads does have a way of adding friends at random, but in this case a fortuitous chance.

Marcy Hi Tad. Saw you're my friend on GR now, don't know if I'm supposed to do anything to confirm it so I'm just posting this as an acknowledgement.


Bradley I hope you are having a good day! =)
