Books - March 2007

The Big Rumpus by Ayun Halliday
I tried to read this before Theo was born and thought it was boring. Now I think it's hilarious. Raising kids as a normal human being (vs. those families in The Nanny Diaries) in New York. Plus, her husband wrote "Urinetown: The Musical." Possibly during potty-training?

Breakfast at Tiffany's and Other Stories by Truman Capote
Capote was, by most accounts, a talented, unhappy and manipulative man. His stories, especially "A Christmas Memory," reveal someone who knew all about love and its many guises. He also knew all about how to write a great sentence.
