Just finished Sarah and The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things by J.T. Leroy. Dark, distressing, occasionally funny, and (I found) un-put-downable.

I'm rereading Where late the sweet birds sang by Kate Wilhelm - I guess I would categorize it as emotional sci fi, dealing with a communitie's attempt at cloning

i just finished reading How the Light Gets In by M. J. Hyland. It was so good that I wish I was still reading it! I really recommend it to you! I'm not very good at summary's so I'll just copy one from Amazon:
Lou Connor, a gifted but unhappy sixteen-year-old, is desperate to escape her life of poverty in Sydney, Australia. When she is offered a place as an exchange student at a college in Illinois, it seems as if her dreams are going to be fulfilled. Her host family, the Hardings, has a large and beautiful house in Illinois and couldn't be more welcoming. Everything is perfect. Until Lou starts having to live in the suffocating and repressed atmosphere of the Hardings' suburban mansion and things start to go terribly wrong.

Its a great book and I found it hard to put down. Plus the photo on the cover reminded me if Cintia Dicker (w/o the cigarette)!

Colette, "The Pure and the Impure". Very hot!!

"This guided tour of the erotic netherworld with which Colette was so intimately acquainted begins in the darkness and languor of a fashionable opium den. It continues as a series of unforgettable encounters with men and, especially, women whose lives have been improbably and yet permanently transfigured by the strange power of desire. At once lucid and lyrical, The Pure and the Impure stands out as one of modern literature’s subtlest reckonings not only with the varieties of sexual experience, but with the always unlikely nature of love."

War and Peace. I thought I might read it like Snoopy (lol, one word a day), but I doubt I'd live that long
