Motel Chronicles, Sam Shepard

"Motel Chronicles" is a collection of fiction, personal recollections, and poetry, by Sam Shepard. Written with a sparse, clean, direct, style, though not without Shepard's trademark thinking man's approach, I found these pieces to be compelling and a much-needed respite from the noise of the overly talkative world. I would call these pieces stark, and… Continue reading Motel Chronicles, Sam Shepard

Danielle Steel

Here's a great write up/interview of author Danielle Steel at Glamour mag. How has Steel written 179 books? She writes/works twenty to twenty-two hours a day. If that sounds like b.s. to you, you might not be a writer, or at least not one who knows what it's like to lose yourself in the story,… Continue reading Danielle Steel

So, I wouldn't call myself an "environmentalist" unless home decorating counts. I think we've got some serious issues with regard to refuse, litter, polluting our waterways and thus, our water. I'm one of those people who believes that the planet is actually "greening" and greener, that is, that there is more vegetation, more green forest… Continue reading Clean Water

Just Kids, Patti Smith

I loved this memoir from Patti Smith of her early years in New York with Robert Mapplethorpe. Some of the subject matter won't be everyone's cup of tea, the title doesn't reveal that this is a book for adults, and it is very gritty in places. If you are unfamiliar with who Robert Mapplethorpe was… Continue reading Just Kids, Patti Smith
