    Finished David McCullough's Truman biography. That was an interesting time in American history.

    I saw this thread and thought "I need to add A Gentleman in Moscow". It's amazing. It's like a quaint beautiful play. So intimate and well written. I absolutely loved it. One of the better novels I have read in a long time.

The book itself was wonderful, one of the best I've read in a while. My wife read this, and thought it was, Neh! As the saying goes, different strokes for different folks.

    ‘House Made of Dawn’ by N. Scott Momaday. He is the first Native American author to win the Pulitzer Prize. For that book. In 1969. Seemed appropriate to read as tomorrow is Indigenous Peoples Day. A sad but redemptive story. Writing is like slow poetry. I had a opportunity to see a documentary screening of his life that’s just out called ‘Words From a Bear’. Wonderful man and story. Look for it on Netflix, etc. ext month. ����
