Making observations that other people would neither make nor share.
I'm into anything by Junot Diaz, and I've been running around recommending Black Box by Jennifer Egan to coworkers. I'd like to extend the recommendation to you. I'm wrapping up Amis' Money, but it's been kind of a slog. Maybe if the narrator is unreliable, the chronology should be linear?
On the TV side, I pretty much stick to premium cable stuff. Sometimes that results in binge-watching. As for movies, I like documentaries, but I can also get into big-budget Hollywood stuff. S'plosions! Car chases!
