Current & Last 6 Books: Seife's Zero: the Biography of a Dangerous Idea; Whitehead's Harlem Shuffle; Dabek's My Father's Wife and My Daughter's Emu which is a breathtakingly good read. I'm stopping the list here to quote to you an email I wrote to the author:
I've read plenty of books that were perfectly worth their time, and I've read plenty of books that I didn't want to put down. I think yours may be the first that I kept putting down because I just didn't want it to end. Every five or ten pages--not even every story!--I'd walk away and do something else just so I could live a while with this new bit of amazing bouncing around in me.
