Edward Hopper

Trying something a little different this time, part of what I hope to be a new strand, if folks like it: Comic Crits on various visual artists. I'm hoping that they'll bring a slightly different viewpoint to aspects of well-known artists, as well as introduce new ones.

2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson

Now that I have had a little time to reflect on this review, I feel I was a bit harsh. It's actually a great book, perhaps even seminal. I just wish I had enjoyed reading it more. For some reason, the characters never lept to life for me, but I suppose having that and great sci-fi ideas is asking too much. Could be my fault; other seem to have no problems.

A Woman in Berlin by Anonymous

Hats off to my niece, living in Bonn, who turned me on to this extraordinary book.

The Unread

It's a bit shameful how many books I start and don't finish. If books are conversations it feels like I'm snubbing the authors. Oh well.
