I’m reading 3 books at once right now. Baumgartner’s Bombay, a gut- wrenching account of a German Jew who escapes to India and lives there for the next 50 years, is pretty rough but I want to finish it. I Remember by Joe Brainard, which is brilliant but a little exhausting to read. It’s just phrases or paragraphs beginning with ‘I remember.’ It’s a very clever book. Mitzi gave it to me. Then I started the Best American Non-required Reading of 2006. The Introduction by Matt Groening is worth admission price itself!
