Going avant-garde

At the Times, Janet Maslin reviews Steve Martin's autobiography Born Standing Up. Hmmm, I think I've got to get that one, despite the out-of-control unread-book situation round here (have I ever had a semester where I read so few books?!?): the bit in the New Yorker a few weeks ago was quite, quite wonderful...


  1. I am going to consider reading Steve Martin's "biography" instead of living my own life time very well spent.

  2. Oh, yes - hmm, would make a funny way of dividing biographies worth reading vs. not worth reading, though I suppose in some sense this is ALWAYS the discrimination with books!
