Books I'm reading right now:
On Beauty by Zadie Smith (enjoying it very much, wanting to slowly settle in to the lives of a bunch of characters I'll live with for a couple of weeks)
U.S.! by Chris Bachelder (forthcoming--I'm reviewing it)
The Wild Iris by Louise Gluck (it's time for a revisitation)
The Cuckoo by Peter Streckfus (I'd been meaning to pick it up since it came out, and I'm finding myself 2/3 seduced)
Dark Brandon by Brandon Downing (still working my way in; I'll report again on this one later)
B and I had a little dinner party tonight for two friends. We made sukiyaki in our new sukiyaki pot.
