What I'm Reading
For the last week I've been wallowing -- wallowing -- in junk. What a treat!
To start with the worst, I'm half-way through The Devil Wears Prada (©2003) by Lauren Weisberger. Makes me want to see the movie.
And I’ve read not one but two 600-page Elizabeth George mysteries, Deception on His Mind (©1997) and In Pursuit of the Proper Sinner (©1999.) Great stuff.
Today I finished the most recent of the Susan Kandel’s Cece Caruso mysteries, Shamus in the Green Room (©2006), which has nothing to do with the theater and everything to do with surfing and not incidentally, Dashiell Hammett. Her previous Cece Caruso mysteries are I Dreamed I Married Perry Mason (©2004) and Not a Girl Detective (©2005), about a Nancy Drew fan club.
And I’m reading How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) (©2004) by Ann Coulter. She's a hoot. But then you don't have to be a conservative Republican to recognize that outrageous she may be, but she's often absolutely right about politics.
