Here are a few things that are entertaining me these days:
The new Lorrie Moore book, A Gate at the Stairs:
I loved everything she ever wrote until Birds of America and, even though everyone else loved it, it sort of fell flat with me. I think it must have been a case of "wrong time, wrong place" and am determined to try it again, just in case.
The new-to-me Animal Collective, Merriweather Post Pavilion:
Josh told me to get this ages ago when La Luz got her first taste of Animal Collective during her rides to swimming lessons with Josh. Quite predictably, my favorite song so far is track one, My Girls.
