What we're reading...
A just finished The Telling Pool, a bar mitzvah gift he received from my senior editor friend. He is now reading Ender's Game.
I am reading The Known World. My goodness. What a cast of characters. What an incredible read. And for anyone who says that Africans were better off in our country as slaves than in their native Africa (as that dude who called in on NPR several years ago, one 4th of July, said was the case), ought to do himself a favor and read this book. 'Nuff said.
