Live long enough and you see faces repeated in time.
"Her laugh sounded like small bones caught in an old throat." [this book was in the Sci Fi section at the library, but it's feeling a bit more like supernatural horror]
I loved the hardcover dust jacket design. The paperback is making me feel meh. Is it worth reading? It's another #laundromatlibrary find
These are the choices at my local laundromat's free book shelf. Should I read any? (Not pictured are the Mary Higgins Clarks, the textbooks, & the get-rich-quicks)
I've been looking forward to this one!
Got some new stamps and a new book to read. 📝📮📬
Loved Meanwhile in San Francisco. Beautiful, heartfelt sketches of the city. Loved the artist's illustrations of scenes from San Francisco Public Library ❤️
"his antiquated card catalog" .... hrumph
This volume showcases Vergara's practice of photographing sites multiple times over a span of years. As a "photographer of decline" he captures moments both bleak and beautiful. Highly recommended!
One of my favorite photographers. This photo taken in Detroit in 2009. Mural painted by Bennie White in 1993.
"Jim Jocoy, traveling between SF & LA, shot portraits of every interesting punk rock personality who caught his eye" ... This could totally be work-appropriate-wear, right?!
Wow! I didn't know that Hynde was at Kent State during the National Guard shootings, or that she was in London with the punks when the Damned, the Clash, & the Pistols were starting out. But, overall her tales were kind of sad. As she herself writes: "this is a book about drug abuse"
Disliked this one. Maybe because I've been reading these rock memoirs and trying to listen to their music at the same time. Everything but the Girl's music is not to my taste. I might try to track down some Marine Girls, maybe that would have made me less critical of the book. I felt like the author shared more insight into Massive Attack's band dynamics than she did into her own.
Found this in a bookstore on Telegraph Ave in Berkeley!
Loved the descriptions of her early years, racketing around London and getting into scrapes. The book takes quite a turn with her married life, but I loved reading about her time with the Slits. Listen to their album Cut, or better yet get your hands on their Peel Sessions.
