Vacations are not for reading books like this one, Kafka Comes to America, but I’m a law librarian and we’re decidedly wonky. (I also read this (incredibly funny, though a bit worrying) and this (by Loren Estleman who also wrote this extraordinary book), so don’t think you can pigeonhole wonky law librarians 🙂
The first chapter of Kafka Comes to America brought back unnerving memories of a couple of things I saw back in the days when I worked in a Philadelphia jail. It’s also unnerving when your own life intersects with the same people in the book you’re reading. (And see also this post on the book at Trial Ad (and other) Notes on the same book.)
Uh, I also enjoy these and am a fan of this super heroine, with a complete set of all “her” (Peter O’Donnell, actually) novels (but not all the comic books).
