The Big deKooning Biography from a few years ago
The Family by Jeff Sharlett.
Everything you need to know about "C Street" even though you're really nauseated that you need to know it.
I'm also adjusting to the "bifocal contacts" which means it's taking me longer to wade through it than I'd like.
Your fifteen minutes are up.

"Knoxville is a guitar town with a banjo problem."- Susan Bauer Lee
"Republicans in East Tennessee live in a government compound of national and state forests, land grant universities, nuclear research labs, and TVA lakes and dams, while pretending to be coonskin cappers guarding the mountain passes to stop socialism." - (Commenter from Oregon discussing the Tennessee Governors contest in the NYT)
Awakening to the Sacred : Creating a Spiritual Life from Scratch - by Lama Surya Das

Cryptonomicon by Stephenson which is pretty cool so far. Just 20 pages in or so. I have also been thumbing through Burroughs Soft Machine at red lights, traffic stops and church etc. I thought Bataille was a freak. No. Burroughs is a FAReak. He musta yoosta hung out with Crow.

I need a good book. Just finished Stieg Larsson's trilogy, about the 4'11" girl with the dragon tattoo who is more like a 21st century Rambo than any thing I've ever seen.
So I need something good. I started to re-read Harper Lee's To Kill a blah blah, but I just couldn't back into it. I also tried re-reading the Shipping News, but nothing.
I need something new, but it has to be good.
