To read for rest of summer on vacation (not in this order):

The Trouble with Testosterone
The Body Artist
Anna Karenina
¡Que vivan los tamales! Food and the Making of Mexican Identity
One Hundred Years of Solitude
[90 pages to go!]

[No progress on the first 7 texts. Okay, I haven’t exactly been rushing this reading this, but I did read the recent issue of Fence *almost* cover to cover and also Boston Review. I have to read Frankenstein before the semester starts if I want to include it in my super cool British Lit class.]

This just in: The Juan Carlos melon is actually called the Juan CANARY melon. My apologies for any confusion. The Quiet American is pretty good. Brendan Fraser’s actual nationality is a bit distracting. I also just saw lots of typos in previous postings. Give me the strength not to correct them obsessively.

Send much LUSH as soon as possible; supplies are getting low.
