What San Francisco is Reading

The bus is a great place for people watching and for getting reading recommendations! Here's a few of the top reads from the #22 bus this week:

Everville - By Clive Barker. The Publisher's Weekly review is really hard to decipher. Apparently the book has something to do with "Quiddity," "boschean images" and "celestial hierarchy." I don't think this one is for me.

Johnny Cash - By Michael Sreissguth. According to Booklist, this is an "admirably thorough" biography.

Textbook for Long Term Care Assistants
- By Sheila Sorrentino. The guy who was reading this on the bus seemed so excited about his new career.

Someone Else - By Tonino Benacquista. A novel about two men who meet in Paris and vow to change their identities. One becomes a private investigator and the other becomes an alcoholic.

Hmmm, that's a pretty odd combination of books!

The Johnny Cash book sounds kind of interesting. I loved that movie. I read a lot, tapes mostly because they make great company when I paint. I just finished. Founding Mothers by Cokie Roberts. I liked her idea for the book, but loathed her editorial. Still, it was worth reading. I also just finished The Bridge at Andau by James Michener about the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. The book is pretty rough in spots, think Nazi terror, but their were also stories of courage and kindness that were truly amazing, one of the best books I've read in a long while.
