Today was one of my regular library visits.
I had a whole bunch of books to bring back,
Some of those books I reviewed and really enjoyed.
The Collected Stories Of Raymond Carver and James Agee’s Death In The Family.
Both wonderful and well worth reading.
I had also taken out a Scandinavian mystery for mom, Joe Nesbo.
She didn’t like it but, she did love the Peter Robinson from the same visit.
I also enjoy Robinson,
his Inspector Banks is as interesting as Rankin’ s Rebus.
Today I got Philip Kerr’ s Berlin Noir,
which is a mystery trilogy set in Berlin in the thirties.
There has been major enthusiasm about this series.
That one is for mom but, I hope to have time to read it as well.
In my continued quest to read all things James Agee.
I have checked out Agee: Film Writing and Selected Journalism.
Cinema is one of my great loves.
I have often heard James Agee referred to as a master of film criticism.
I guess I’ll find out if I agree.
Several months ago,
I read a book by Larry McMurtry,
Books: A Memoir.
I enjoyed it immensely and told myself I should read more McMurtry.
Lonesome Dove is supposed to be masterful and his best work.
Honestly, it’ s too big,
I don’t want to read a book that is over 700 pages right now.
Too many in my to read pile.
So, I took out Cadillac Jack, about a rodeo cowboy,
who becomes a antique scout,
sounds like a hoot.
I enjoy the world of antiques.
I will as usual keep you all updated.
