New Reads


Marcel Proust has been a brainy exercise as his writing is very dense and rich. The tension that pushes the multi-clause sentences toward their continually deferred conclusion requires utter concentration. Sometimes the eyes get so tired from nailing the words. It’s a breath of fresh air to take up different books. These two are irresistible. Planes, Pan Am, Boeing 747 and Hillary. Jet Set is full of gossip, scandal, and yes bits of aviation history, and makes for a fascinating read. More than anything, it makes me long for the days when flying was an event. Hillary is just someone I cannot pass. The book is one I cannot avoid. Hard Choices (so far) is well-written and readable but not as explosive as expected. Oh, let me say what everyone is looking for—Clinton is undecided whether she will run for president in 2016.

  1. She’s about as undecided as I am straight.
