Midnight's Children, the Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie. The
Savage Detectives by Roberto Bolano. The Quiet American by Graham
Greene. American Gods by Neil Gaiman, 10:04 by Ben Lerner. Samuel
Johnson is Indignant by Lydia Davis. Amy Hempel short stories. Post
War by Tony Judt. Currently reading: The Power Broker by Robert
Caro, and it might be the best thing I've read yet.
Movies: The Blues Brothers.
Shows: Seinfeld, Arrested Development, The Sopranos.
Music: My roommate turned me onto Grass Widow which I've been
listening to a lot at work. Steely Dan. Laurie Anderson. At work
sometimes I like to put on Q2 so when I'm scrolling through a Word
Doc it sounds like someone is chasing me down a wide, desolate
street with a knife in an oppressive foreign city.
Food: This is terrible and should be a deal breaker for all decent
people, but my doctor legit told me that gluten is killing my
thyroid and to cut it out. On the plus side, if you like Lydia
Davis short stories (see above), you could partake in a real life
"Thyroid Diary" with me. Otherwise I will eat pretty much anything
and have been compared to a garbage can by many people.
