Hello World!

I'm leaving town in two weeks. I have five things to review between now and then. Eek.

Equilibrium will be easy. I loved it, and I have things to say about how Preston turned himself into Partridge and the 1984 imagery got turned on its head.

Angels and Demons will be easy too. Not as easy as The Da Vinci Code, also by Dan Brown, because I don't know Illuminati mythology the way I know Priory of Sion and Holy Grail lore. But it's a fast, fun read with lots of lovely Roman architectural descriptions and a fairly cool heroine.

The two books on Jewish folklore are wonderful but tough, dense reads -- so much death, so much darkness. Has anyone ever done a book purely on life-affirming Jewish legends? If so, I want a copy.

The Arthurian legends book, in truth, I requested primarily for the artwork. Because I know the legends backwards and forwards -- the French versions, the British versions, the musical versions, the feminist versions and the New Age versions -- but one can never have too many reproductions of J.W. Waterhouse's Arthurian paintings.

I guess I'm going to put off finishing Walking To Canterbury for another month! And I'll be taking Michael Chabon's Summerland in the car as well...
