My friend EFBWD in La Jolla has an interesting reading rhythm. She divides her books between her "upstairs" reading and her "downstairs" reading. Upstairs is for fun reading ~ fiction, lighter weight stuff, magazines, etc. Downstairs is for the heavy duty subjects ~ history, biography, weightier tomes. I am currently reading two very different books, one for upstairs, one for down, even though I live in a one-story house.
This is my upstairs book and I am deep into the crazy, utterly dysfunctional Foxmore family as they gather to sit Shiva for the departed patriarch. I know a film has been made of this story; it will be interesting to see what a director and cast can do with this story. What a quirky bunch.
