I'm in an Augusten Burroughs mood.
Read Magical Thinking and Running with Scissors.


Next is Nabakovs The Gift.

And then some David Sedaris.

Ah yes, I read that a few years ago - the senile father with the anal fixation, right? Great book.

I think I left it in LA. Bloody hardback too.

I'm halfway through The Immortalization Commission by John Gray and am finding it interesting in parts but mainly boring as fuck.

Just read White Teeth by Zadie Smith (also my neighbor).
Didn't like it.

Read Arthur Koestler's Scum Of The Earth. Excellent. The insight into the collapse of France and how the Nazi's weren't feared as much as the left even up to and including the Nazi occupation. Brilliant read.
