I especially enjoyed Restless, but Any Human Heart was especially moving. I still wonder about some of the events in A Blue Afternoon. I’ve read every William Boyd novel except a Good Man in Africa.

You really know how to hurt a girl. That's my number one writerly fantasy--that I'll get on the F train and strangers will be reading (and laughing to) my own novel, and so far it hasn't happened.. The bus, yes, and once at the airport, but not the subway. I'm looking forward to seeing what's included in Part II also. And what's not.. Harry!

Comment on New Orleans in Literature (Part I) by Harry Kaplan http://www.bookcourt.org/new-orleans-in-literature-food-and-football/comment-page-1/#comment-90149 Harry Kaplan Wed, 24 Feb 2010 16:39:47 +0000 http://www.bookcourt.org/?p=3569#comment-90149 A fine selection, ! If Frances Madeson means that poor Toole's book is knee-jerk named whenever New Orleans and books are mentioned in the same sentence, well OK, but if she thinks the book itself is tired, I'd keep a running count of how many New York subway riders are still reading it and laughing through every station stop. For New Orleans in Literature (Part II), may I suggest New Orleans Noir, NOLA's entry in the ubiquitous Akashic Press series, and the excellent non-fiction of Ned Sublette, The World That Made New Orleans and The Year Before the Flood.

You accidentally forgot Mary Robison's new miniaturist novel, 1 D.O.A., 1 on the Way. An omission equivalent to writing about comic novels in the POPO period ( post-Osama, pre-Obama--periodization c/o Steven Augustine) and neglecting to mention Cooperative Village (which is, as I'm sure you know since BookCourt was an early supporter, a whole lot funnier and more incisive and relevant to the present moment than that tired old Confederacy of Dunces everyone keeps flogging). Ah well, maybe things will be better when the saints come marching in. Gents!

Whether he was 'greatest jazz musician' of the 20th c. is debatable = it would - yes - be him or Charlie Parker.

Cookbooks are close, but still in second. And it's true: I had, for example, a hardcover "coffee-table" Cartier-Bresson book, bought for $45 about 5 years ago, selling for almost $200. Now, I'm not really the "investor" type; I buy books because I like what's on their pages. But even for me this seems like a good buy on multiple levels!
