    Just finished Wolf Hall, and I'm halfway thru Bring Up the Bodies. Caught between loving and loathing Thomas Cromwell.
    To attract men, I wear a perfume called "New Car Interior."

    Richard III. Haven't read Shakespeare since high school english courses totally alienated me from this writer. Quite entertaining when you don't have to write a report or analyze anything! Makes me feel like finding my copy of Josephine Tey's A Daughter of Time.

    This is a really important work because it's the first really exhaustive academic study of atrocities committed in Spain during and after its Civil War.
    Who says the golden era has to be tasteful and dignified?

    I was in Richard III at the Utah Shakespearean Festival back in 1987. I was Richmond's (played by a young Benjamin Bratt) herald.

    Gee ... looks like some uplifting inspirational holiday reading.

    I just recently read the Savage Continent by Keith Lowe. Just as emotionally draining, I suppose.

    William Hjorstberg's mammoth biography of Richard Brautigan. As good a social history of a now vintage time as it is about the man and writer.
