‘Zits’ and ‘Magnificent Bastard’

There, did that title get your attention? Zits is main character of the book I just finished reading, Flight by Sherman Alexie. It’s fast, it’s quirky, it’s fun, and it made me cry on the last page. The perfect book.

Now I’m reading Rich Hall’s Magnificent Bastards, a collection of short stories that knows no boundaries. Ever wonder what a werewolf does when he’s in the mood for Chinese food? Or what happens when a verbally impaired boyfriend decides to compile Google search results into love poems? These are fun stories.

On the personal side, my husband has made two more trips to the emergency room at Albany General. His surgery two weeks ago is not working out so well. He seems to be deteriorating quickly. I honestly don’t know what will happen next. Prayers appreciated.
