Books - October 2006

White Teeth by Zadie Smith
Modern and funny and packed full of interesting language, cultural references, and humor. It took me weeks to finish it, maybe because I read it directly after All the Pretty Horses, which is so spare.

London Lonely Planet Guidebook
We trusted this and the Time Out online restaurant guide to help us find the best food and to navigate the sights.

Specimen Days by Michael Cunningham
Cunningham affects the way I think about literature and stories. He reimagines themes and characters, transcending genre and period, launching original ideas from classic works in ways that would occur only to a courageous writer. I can't wait to see what he does next.
