Words and Music

14 08 2007

I’ve been soliciting lists from a few people, but posting none of them, so I’ll just get started by posting my own. The others will surely show up eventually. Let me just qualify that these are favorites of the moment. The list is likely to change tomorrow.

The Music (in no particular order):

Beck, Mutations

Gillian Welch, Soul Journey

Red Stick Ramblers, Bring It On Down

Sugar Pie DiSanto, In the Basement

The Beatles, Rubber Soul

Bill Frisell, Unspeakable

I may feel a White Stripes binge coming on, but I can’t be sure…

The Words:

Primo Levi, The Periodic Table

Bernhard Schlink, The Reader

Michael Oren, Six Days of War

Sue Miller, Inventing the Abbotts

Did I mention Primo Levi?

I plan to spend a week on the beach in N. Carolina later this month, so here are my planned vacation reads:

Maggie Balistreri, The Evasion English Dictionary

Davis/Hersh, The Mathematical Experience

Tobias Wolff, The Barracks Thief

Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life

Amy Tan, Saving Fish From Drowning

Mark Helprin, Freddy & Fredericka

Guns and Ammo magazine (just checking to see if you’re still awake…)
