what i am reading
straight man, by richard russo. it’s laugh-out-loud-on-the-subway funny (even if it’s taking me forever to finish it)
“at large and at small” by anne fadiman. i just re-read this for the second time, and it was as good as the first. i cannot say enough good things about this book of ‘familiar essays’ about ice cream, coffee, moving, writing letters, etc. if you do nothing else today, pick up a copy of this book!
the new issue of “the art of eating.” this in-depth food quarterly is always interesting, thorough and very unique. i highly recommend it if you like reading about food (as i clearly do).
the new issue of corduroy magazine. i finally picked up a copy of this brilliant mag, and i’m liking all of the art, photos and interviews contained inside.
finally, and most importantly, i’m reading this: “brooklyn’s new culinary movement” from the nytimes. this article makes me happy in so many ways i can’t even begin to explain. mast brothers, marlow and sons, stinky bklyn, sixpoint … brooklyn! you rock. hard.
