Awesome, Beth, thank you. Anytime you combine "dark" and "funny" I'm interested. Also "Barbie" and "on her head." Lovely!

You're very welcome! I hope you enjoy them :)

I had a friend who read almost nothing but nonfiction and plays, and I went through a phase where I read only nonfiction and poetry. But then nonfiction is a constant, right?

Poetry in JD Salinger always, always makes me think of "John Keats/John Keats/John./Please put your scarf on." I can't at the moment remember what book it's in, though, despite having read them all a gazillion times.

Laura,
All I can say after a year of reading a lot more fiction than I had for years previously is: ah, the sweet constant of nonfiction. Sweet, sweet nonfiction.

And, dammit. Now I'm going to have to go on a Salinger bender, just to find the Keats scarfy line. If I have to, I have to! Have a great weekend, you.

May I offer up The Wisdom of Eve b Mary Orr and Reginald Denham - if you would like a play to read? I've had it on bookmooch but no one seems to want it. I'd be very happy to send your way; just e/m me. :)
I didn't read the Menage books but I'll be reading everyone's comments! have fun, Care

"The Importance of Being Earnest" is hysterical. "Lysistrata" is even funnier. I also enjoyed "Waiting for Godot" and "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead." The great thing about plays is that they can be read fairly quickly, unlike those 800-page novels we always get suckered into.

Hm, Importance of Being Earnest. That's interesting. I've always wanted to read some Oscar Wilde. If "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern" is anything like the movie, though, I'm going to have to stay away--I was totally confused by it! (Yes, I know, I have spoiled my brain through chick flicks. I can't help myself.)
