P-town reading lists . . .
. . . are more or less complete, but as any reader knows, temptation lurks until the door is closed. Richard is all set with his Christmas book (the new Scott Turow) and his Hanukkah book (Schickel's bio of Elia Kazan). I'm bringing Colm Toibin's The Master, Paris Requiem by Lisa Appignanesi, Suketu Mehta's Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found, The Perfect Mile by Neal Bascomb, The Light Years by Elizabeth Jane Howard, and Kipling's Kim. Miss Pod is contributing the new Sue Grafton and Jane Dunn's bio of Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots. Any bets as to what will be finished and what will be completely ignored? I hope everyone has a great New Year.
