    The Wife went out of town last night (wine tasting with girlfriends) so I was Unsupervised for the night. So, for the first time in probably 25 years, I sat and watched Apocalypse Now. My god is it good. The use of light and color is almost magical. Anyone who says that digital is a worthy replacement for film is out of their mind.

    Reading Lafcadio Hearn ghost stories, sort of a late Halloween thing.Report

    I finished reading I Am Algonquin. Good enough that I’ll order the next book in the trilogy via ILL fairly soon.

    Now reading an A.A. Gill collection, I think it’s the last of his books I haven’t read yet, which is kind of depressing since he’s deceased. Sigh. It’s rather good, too.

    Picture book of the week is Viva, Frida! by Yuyi Morales, which I was expecting to be a biography of Frida Kahlo but is actually more of a dreamscape about her, with handcrafted stop-motion puppets. Stunning.Report

      @leeesq Are you enjoying it? It’s my favorite Steinbeck (so far) but I find it hard to understand why…Report

        Since its a retelling of the story of Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel, its a very primal book. Steinbeck is the American author best suited to really invoke the primal feeling because of the raw passion he can invoke at times.Report

    Just finished Philip K. Dick’s ‘Flow my tears, the policeman said’ last night and working on the speeches of Cicero in defense of the republic, both of which feel timely.Report

    I’m reading What Are You Looking At? by Will Gompertz which is a history of modern art from the Impressionists to Tracey Emin.

    I am also reading the Salerton Trilogy by Robertson Davies.

    I’ve been on a book buying binge recently. Recent purchases include The Story of the Jews: Volume II by Simon Schama, Fin De Siecle France by Eugene Weber, Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan, the second volume of Mike Wallace’s history of NYC.Report
