I Interview Myself about What I've been Reading for the Booker Challenge

What is Schindler’s List about?
It's about springtime and also winter but mostly it's about crying on the subway.

And what genre is it?
It is the BIG EXPERIENCE genre of novelesque nonfiction.

And the second book you read for the Booker challenge, The Color of Blood, what kind of book was that?
This is what they call a “catholic thriller.” I’m afraid to say I found the bad guys deranged but sympathetic.

Whom would you recommend this book to?
Anyone stuck in a long line at the grocery store.

You’re now halfway through When We Were Orphans. What is that about?
This book is about how much you should read every one of Kazuo Ishiguro’s books, lather, rinse and repeat. How you should be well reminded that he is a superior novelist to Ian McEwan and many flouncy American novelists.

Whom would you recommend this book to?
Anyone who appreciates good architecture as well as cozy interior design. There is a low fire going in the fireplace, and a Bijar rug laid out before it.
