A little culture
Mostly I've been reading students' papers--it's that time of year. But I did have time to take up two recommendations from my friend Nico. The first was a wonderfully good Messiah at St. Thomas Fifth Avenue, with uncanny boys' choir & lovely period orchestra. The second--I'm only halfway through but I'm salivating in excitement at what an excellent, excellent book it is--isSet This House in Order, by Matt Ruff. I can't wait to read all his other books too! How did I miss hearing about this before?
