I don’t get a dime if you buy it so don’t kill yourself. I can give you a copy.

Should’ve given Bradbury his flowers while he was living, but this is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. Completely applicable, resonant, timeless.

If you haven’t, do. Buy.

I’m not dead. I’m still reading and writing. I vowed not to watch one second of the Olympics and have been watching non-stop. A few months ago I read Scott Turow’s, “Innocent.” It’s the sequel to “Presumed Innocent” which was a very good novel. The sequel, not so much. Too long. Too much meandering. Plus:

This was cliche city. Skip.

Five word revew time. This is a collection of shorts named after a Ghostface lyric. So, by law, I had to read it. It was good. Solid. Well done. Towards the end the stories felt a little redundant. This review touches on that:

Five word book review time. Just finished, “Tough Guys Don’t Dance” by Norman Mailer. It reminded me that sometimes it’s good to struggle with a text. This was a convoluted mess of a narrative. The prose was fantastic in spots. But the story itself tried way too hard and was at times overwrought. It was bold and there were some high points. But, I was never clear on what precisely was happening. This is recommended if you want to be challenged.

Even Good Folks Struggle. Skip.
