Boy & Bear - A Moment’s Grace
August books in the read pile. Apparently a month for reading books by guys named Mark.
- Thomas Harris - Because 1st person sociopath narration is disturbingly delightful.
- Lydia Davis - Because her writing is forever quotable plus imaginative, an Andrea-approved combination.
- Louise Millar - Because the plot reminds me of a 1990’s made-for-tv Lifetime Movie Network production and that’s a great, great thing.
- Mark R. Levin ( * x ∞ )- Because this country’s in a spiral and his proposed solution would help rectify the abuses.

Claire is smarter than I am. I’m not saying that out of some half-baked feminist sentiment or in order to endear women to me. You’ll never hear me claim that ‘women in general’ are smarter than men. Or more sensitive, more intuitive, or that they are more ‘in touch with life’, or any of the other horseshit that, when all is said and done, so-called ‘sensitive’ men try to peddle more often than women themselves.
