A Good Book Is Hard To Find

I'm off for a few days until next Monday, but I've posted a good many items I hope will interest you. Meanwhle, I want to recommend a book given to me on my birthday by Bill Charlap. "Easy To Remember, The Great American Songwriters and Their Songs" by William Zinsser, David R. Gordine, Publisher. It's a delightful book filled with insight and humor and for me, it's the perfect summer read. Thanks Bill. And thank you Mr. Zinsser.

Until next time, I hope everyone is enjoying an especially fine summer. It's been nothing short of stupendous here in Southern New England, and the Red Sox are today seven games ahead of the Yankees after we lost last night to the Orioles, and the Yankees thrashed the poor Chicago White Sox 16-3. Baseball scores this season more closely resemble football tallies.

I haven't read Zinsser's book yet but I am reading Wilfrid Sheed's "The House That George Built .. With a Little Help from Irving, Cole, and a Crew of About Fifty." It is merely superb and I highly recommend it to anyone reading this blog.
