- Am just finishing Lew Puller's "Fortunate Son," a autobiography by a Vietnam vet who had both his legs blown off. Clear-eyed, straight-ahead prose. There are fascinating accounts of battle and the war experience, but a lot more in the book, too.

- Plug for a friend's Web site (that I help her with): Here's an , a Paris-based American writer of romans noirs.

I'm on my "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die" kick, so I just finished up One Hundred Years of Solitude (loved it), and have moved on to The Unbearable Lightness of Being (decent).

I'm into Righteous Pilgrim, a biography of Harold Ickes, a Chicago Progressive leader and Secretary of Interior under FDR. Given our current crop of n'er-do-wells, one can only hope to see the likes of Mr. Ickes in a more enlightened age to come.

I recently finished reading Steven Johnson's Everything Bad is Good for You.

I don't know that I would call it a "review", but I talk about it on my blog:

Right now I'm about half way through Kevin Kelly's Out of Control: The New Biology of Machines, Social Systems, and the Economic World.
