Books read lately

The father-in-law showed up on Friday with a stash of books, of which I read Sailor on Horseback by Irving Stone, a biography of Jack London, The Sportswriter by Richard Ford, Galatea by James M. Cain, and I started The Old Patagonia Express by Paul Theroux - these were part of the stash Dana's uncle the Book Snake sent to the father-in-law to read while he was recovering from surgery.

The London book is about 70 years old, the Cain book about 50 years old, the others about 30 years old.

The reason for so much reading is that I was the designated sitter of this crew, while the others went to the Virginia Highlands Festival.
