It's worth reading.

It's true. Good little book.


I'd recommend a book called Hopscotch by a weirdo named julio cortazar.

The old Man and The Sea was the worst piece of shit I have ever read. I just can't get into that style of writing. To each his own though.

I guess I'd put forth the one I mentioned I was reading, The Pianist. It's a memoir, and the whole WWII holocaust thing will give you plenty to write about if/when you have to do papers on it.

An interesting look into a "hidden dimension" of American racism. If you have ever wondered why blacks tend to live in bigger cities and urban centers this book explains how it wasn't an accident. It also talks about how racist states like Illinois and Indiana really where and shows that the South really wasn't the center of racism in our country.

have you ever read loewen's book "lies across america"?  such a promising topic, sbut uch an intensely superficial book...    hopefully his work has improved since then.    you might like to follow up with robert fogelson's excellent book on restrictive convenants in american suburbs:

Weren't you arguing that the South WAS the center of racism in the country just a few months ago?

I think that was the Gipper, also until I read this book I didn't understand how widespread racism was in the North.
