I just started a book called The Proud And The Free by Janet Dalley.
Da Vinci's Ghost: Genius, Obsession, and How Leonardo Created the World in His Own Image, by Toby Lester
Starting JG Ballard's The Drowned World, his prescient 2nd novel about global warming.
50.000 interesting facts. The first time I've ever read anything on a Kindle. Bizarre!!!
Starting a "Comedy d'Art" Sacre Bleu, by Christopher Moore. Comedy and Art, right up my alley.
Also reading Huang Fan's Zero and other fictions. He's Taiwanese, and the title story is a 1984-like story. Pretty cool so far.
I just started reading Timothy Leary's "The Delicious Grace of Moving One's Hand: The Collected Sex Writings"; it's quite fabulous & much more philosophical than one might assume. But then again, it is Timothy Leary... ;)
THIS IS ONE HEAVY TOME.

Yeah , I just finished reading it , a while back. It took me forever to get thru it , but , Alice does tell great stories.....Yeah , Geza X , AND , OF COURSE , Patricia Morrisson were in the Bags , until they imploded. Her ex , Nickey Beat , from The Wierdos , was also , briefly , in The Cramps , in '91. Good as a drummer as he is , he was'nt right for them. He LOOKED the part.
I'm reading VIOLENCE GIRL the autobiography of Alice Bag. Tons o' fun, w/ some great pix and scoops on the L.A punk scene, it also doesn't skimp on her childhood in East L.A.
Geza X was in an early incarnation of the Bags.
Did ya know she went out w/ one o' the Weirdos?
