in the last month:
The Daiquiri Girls
some comic noir spy book, forgot title
Currently i'm working on
The Brothers Karamazov
I read The White Boy Shuffle by Paul Beatty last night. I think it may have just taken the podium on my "favorite books" list. It's a smart satire on race, culture, and society. I found it to be laugh-out-loud hilarious at parts and thought provoking at others.

I've only read 8 pages so far, but it's great.

Basically, it's a driving trip through the American Southwest with a bunch of CD's, and the telling of stories, memories, and history associated with those CD's
I enjoyed it, although Peart has a tendency to wander off the subject occasionally. Overall, he's almost as good of an author as he is a drummer/lyricist.
Somewhat off-topic, Neil Peart really enjoys his BMW's...his second book ("Ghost Rider") is his narrative of his 55,000 mile tour of North and Central America on his first BMW motorcycle (I think he has a couple now, as well as the Z8).

Glad you enjoy it. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] I'm amazed at all the detail and research he did to write the book.
