Leggs, huge Chandler fan here. Had all of them, but they were casualties of my last house move. Ready to read him again since I forget his plots.

Jaybro, I agree about Franzen's last one. The Corrections it wasn't. There's a priceless three page rant within it about Apple. Though I love my iphone and live near the widow Jobs, it's a scream. Franzen should not have written as a woman (gentrifying former female college basketball star). What was he thinking?

Hi Kathy... Surely you jest.. I will check back after I have actually read it.. I can already tell that I am going to like it, though. I just have a feeling about such things. Funny shirt, by-the-way!

haha, I read " a heartbreaking work of staggering genius"... at first I thought it was the best thing ever, then i just thought it wasn't... but he wrote "what is the what" and that was THE WHAT.

'Out there in the woods' Written by Stephen Sparks and the Mendocino Co. Sheriff, Tom Allman. Tells the 2011 tale of the epic 36 day manhunt for Aaron Bassler, accused of the shooting murder of Forester Matt Coleman and former mayor and then city councilman Jere Melo. A good read.

Resumed Back to Blood, reading 500+ pages in two days. Probably his last great American novel due to age.

Melissa, I agree that T. W. echoes moments from previous novels: "the pimp roll," "solar plexus," "loamy loins." Buuut, the "tintinnabulations of aluminum walkers" at the Yenta retirement community had me in stitches.

Long live the New Journalists. Sad days when Wolfe and Didion pass.

Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics
Ross Douthat

The guy is evidently in a supporter of the neo-orthodox point of view and as such blind to the weaknesses of his home team, but otherwise well worth a read if you want to think about the direction of religion in the United States.

Most of the way through, Into the Silence; "The Great War, Mallory, and the Conquest of Everest"
Wade Davis, Vintage Canada

The opening chapters on the carnage and horrors of WW1's trench warfare set a disturbing backdrop for the British exploration of Mt. Everest.
A compelling read so far.
