Roll Call

September 7, 2006

Granny took down her blog. I hope her lymphoma treatment is going well.

The Old Hag is having another contest that involves giving away books. You know how I feel about free books.

C Love got into the City Paper again.

American Vertigo was surprisingly readable. Either I need to revisit the works of Bernard Henri Levy anew, or this was a particularly good translation. However, The Book of Imaginary Beings left me cold. The anthology of spiritual writing remains untouched on my nightstand. I have neglected the things of the spirit in favor of two more novels by Philippa Gregory that turned up in the library on Friday.

RTVi is serving up two very tasty costume drama miniseries this week for ye lovers of the Big Russian Soul: Chornij Voron (“Black Crow”) and Devyat’ Zhiznej Nestora Makhno (“The Nine Lives of Nestor Makhno”).
