Getting lost with The Lost Generation

Books, books, books. I love being around them, smelling them and of course reading them. Armed with my Brooklyn Public Library card and in an effort of continuing self education, I’m reading some American classics. Last week was The Great Gatsby. Coming up, East of Eden and The Sun Also Rises. Clearly, I’m on a Lost Generation kick. My dad would be so proud.

Fairy Tale Interrupted

The Kennedy obsession continues. It started with me reading On the Trail of the Assassins {basis for Oliver Stone’s JFK} when I was 8 years-old and continues with Fairy Tale Interrupted, a memoir written by John Kennedy Jr.’s former assistant. It came out on Tuesday and I held out until Sunday to download it from the iTunes store and stare at my tiny iPhone screen, absorbing all the JFK Jr. & CBK goodness. Not super-lengthy {250ish pages} but I can’t remember the last time I read an entire book in one day. It was compelling for a Kennedy freak like me but not as insightful as say, What Remains. Regardless, I can get back to the 3 books that I’m currently in the middle of.
