    Saraswati Park was OK. This was her first book, so I took that into consideration. It took a while for the novel to find its focus - the first part was a bit meandering. There were moments later in the gay story that I thought were quite genuine, but for a novel of this modest length she was already working with a limited canvas and really couldn't afford to waste any words. There were missed opportunities, I thought. So, I admire her for this early effort, but not a book that I'd re-read right away.

    If internet stories count it would be Life's Illusions.

    Not the best story in the world, but I like it.

    Yeah, it's not the best... Human motivation doesn't seem too likely now, but the person who bought the book for me argued that pan-species communism is actually somewhat relevant in some cultures.

    I'm going through a Dickens phase again, so I'm on Nicholas Nickleby. I'll probably be back on Bleak House (the one I actually want to read) in a month or so. Can't you tell I'm thrilled? :/

    An impossibly affable man from the sticks journeys to Delhi to work as a driver for his rich master, and becomes rich himself. But becoming rich in India necessitates corruption and worse. The tone of the narration is so breezy and charming you may almost miss the grim subject matter. Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2008.

    Aravind Adiga's The White Tiger (2008).

    Heirs to Forgotten Kingdoms - overview of a few Middle Eastern minor religions that are in jeopardy of dying off (Mandeans, Yezidis, etc.) - I like the history and travel aspects, but some entries do get a bit bogged down.

    Re: BOOKS: What are you reading?

    I've been reading some possibly semi-fictional biographies by Darwin Porter: James Dean, Paul Newman, and Steve McQueen. While I do believe that there is a lot of truth in these biographies, I also think that parts of them have not been verified, although they may still be true. If they are true, then it appears that Hollywood in the early/mid 1950s was very gay, or at least bisexual. I think it is fairly well documented that James Dean had a lot of gay affairs, but I did not realize that he had had that many, including one with Paul Newman. I knew Paul Newman was bisexual because I've known people who have seen him at gay parties. According to his bio by Darwin Porter, he had crushes on Robert Wagner (who was also bisexual), Robert Redford, and Tom Cruise, although these three were never consummated, unlike his relationships with Steve McQueen, James Dean, and Marlon Brando.

    Normally I do not read that much fiction, but Darwin Porter has also written a novel, Hollywood's Silent Closet, about gay affairs of silent film stars. I started reading this also, but the author has a bit of trouble keeping his stories straight - or at least the chronologies and ages of the characters.

    More often I read books on anthropology, but I recently started rereading a Kierkegaard anthology.

    Someone else said that it appears people here do not read books that much, and I had been looking for this thread without success until today.

    I'm very curious as to what others think about Darwin Porter.

    I have read the Darwin Porter books on Elizabeth Taylor and Jackie Kennedy Onassis. I enjoyed them but its hard to tell what is true and what isn't. What is the James Dean one like?

    Re: BOOKS: What are you reading?

    I haven't really started the James Dean one yet - only skimmed through parts of it, but there are episodes in that book that are taken from the Paul Newman bio, which I am still reading now. I read these very slowly because when I finish them, I won't have something as sensational to read. I stopped reading the Steve McQueen bio just one chapter before finishing and then went to Paul Newman.

    The James Dean book is massive, and so I think that there might be more fabrication there, but the Paul Newman and Steve McQueen bios seem to be fairly well documented. I also read Full Service by Scotty Bowers, and according to LA Weekly, it is reasonably accurate. Living in Los Angeles, I find it very easy to believe and have no reason to doubt it. Women here generally expect men to be either gay or bisexual, especially if they are actors, but then they may be overly pessimistic. One female friend of mine always tries to take her new boyfriends to gay bars to see if they can resist the temptation.

    Re: BOOKS: What are you reading?

    I just finished Samuel Delany's Dhalgren (1974). It's a long and heady book that touches on many ideas, but is structured so incoherently that it dips between poesy and mental illness unnoticeably. It's trippy in a counter-culture 70's way, and its mysteries remain un-answered. Harlan Ellison read less than half and threw it across the room. But William Gibson claimed to love it.

    It took me a while, but I've finished Nixonland by Rick Perlstein. So many parallels to today: lying politicians who distrust the media, a divided America, police brutality... But there's hope in that some things are different. There's not much race rioting. Open housing is a given.

    Own a copy of that. Although I found the book enjoyable, the movie Sunset Boulevard and the Hollywood legend on which the book is based are far more interesting in themselves. Not Barker´s finest.

    The Fourth Perspective by Robert Greer. An African-American antiques dealer in Denver becomes involved with a murder case - and a woman from his past who wants him dead. I like any book where one of the bad guys is dead on page 17.
