This morning I checked Twitter and Facebook for the library.
I put a hold on Strategy: A History by Lawrence Freedman http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/2/b8399676-4c7f-11e3-923d-00144feabdc0.html#axzz2lPCOrk6L
In the laundromat, I read some more of The Flamethrowers by Rachel Kushner. The book has an edge to it. The sensuality is a mix of Italy in the summer, New York at night, the ski slopes of Colorado, and the salt flats of Reno where they do speed tests with motorcycle. At the same time it is an artistic sensibility with a touch of Baudelaire.
