Finally got around to Marry Karr's memoir of growing up poor, trashy, in Texas oil-field territory, The Liar's Club. Detailing an upbringing with a roughneck father and alcoholic mother, the book is both kinda sad and uproariously funny - not an easy thing to carry off. I have the feeling that she over-massaged the past to both favour and savage herself, but that's a quibble and one not uncommon to the memoir genre. Apparently, this book was on the  NYT's best books list for a year and a I can see why. Very enjoyable.

I rarely read fiction, but this was exceptional. Best new fiction I've read since 'Up in the Air'.

Occasionally brilliant, but generally speaking, an alcoholic asshole.

Haha.

Well, most alcoholics are boring and pathetic, but history has produced some brilliant ones.

I didn't read one page of the last book I had sitting by my bed, so I have decided to read one by Lynda La Plante because I love her books and I know I won't be able to put it down for hours.  I could read one I already have or purchase a new one, will look in the book stores tomorrow.

The hardcover edition of Michio Kaku's "Hyperspace" makes an excellent vial storage unit once one cuts out a rectangular portion of the middle chapters.

I've had great results with Gould's The Structure of Evolutionary Theory when trafficking striped Asians* across APEC shipping ports. Wolfram's A New Kind of Science is also great in a pinch.
