    Weetzie Bat by Francseca Lia Block- a reread. I love the author's use of imagery and sort of a poetic approach to prose. It's all very much from Weetzie's point of view... that perhaps she has a tendency to romanticize and be too carefree- but don't we all want a little to see the magic in the world- for the simplest, equisite pleasures. On reread it's definitely interesting to compare Weetzie's world-perception to My-Secret-Agent-Lover-Man's (and in later books, to Cherokee's and Witch Baby's).

    The Dead Fathers Club by Matt Haig- a modern retelling of Hamlet... with Hamlet recast as Phillip Noble, an 11 yr old boy whose dad has just died. Is meant to work on two levels, one the classic ghost-story level and on the Phillip-is-going-crazy level. Does a good job of humanizing the characters (especially Ophelia/Leah, I thought), but the unravelling of the plot in the last fourth didn't do either level justice.

    Just bought this:



    Weird, as I never buy fictional books. I think I'm going to get "Blood Meridian" soon by the same author.

    The Power of Kindness by Pierro Ferrucci. Amazing! And A Cook's Tour by Anthony Bourdain, which is way too funny...
