REVIEWS

Yes, I am. And soon I'll write some things about Morocco, land of feral children, walled cities, and pretty New Zealanders. But right now I'm sick and exhausted.

Tobias Wolff reads Denis Johnson's great story 'Emergency.'

While I was away, the Hipster Book Club reviewed Midnight Picnic.

I saw Star Trek.  The character stuff was good.  A pleasure to watch.  Ready to see a sequel.

I read On Beauty while in Morocco. Came away with the impression that it was a sloppy book full of squandered dramatic opportunities, and the characters were thin and nasty.

Also re-read Prep. Still find it sweet, funny, well-written.
