Books:Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex, Mary Roach.
As with Roach's previous books, I checked this one out, then eventually returned it unread. I'm probably totally missing out.The Terror Dream: Fear and Fantasy in Post-9/11 America, Susan Faludi.
I thought her other two books were brilliant. So, although I haven't started reading this one yet, I'ma hang on to it a while longer. I'm thinking I'll start it right after I finishThe 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation, Sid Jacobsen and Ernie Colon.
Appears in that NYT Book Review thing
where they ask people what book they want the presidential candidates (or, uh, the candidates and Hillary Clinton) to read, but I won't let that stop me.Born In Flames: Termite Dreams, Dialectical Fairy Tales, and Pop Apocalypses, Howard Hampton.
I picked it up because he's written about a few of my favorite jazz musicians, and I'm definitely a fan. He's one of those wide-ranging critics that sees weird connections and unions and intersections and whatnot. I like that.
