I needed a break before I run headlong into more humor with Franzen's The Corrections. I will be following that up by finishing the barnes & noble collection of The Metamkorphosis and then I might re-read Catch-22, one of my all time favorite books.
Oh, I'm looking for a really good biography on Alexander Hamilton, one of my favorite historical figures. Anyone got any leads?
@ Alexander Hamilton: I've heard the new book is good and plan to pick it up shortly: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... ct-details
Ahhhh...Alexander Hamilton, arguably the most brilliant of the founding fathers. Talk about truly staggering genius. He was born a bastard in the West Indies, deserted by his father, self-taught, goes to America, becomes a great military officer, then the first Secretary of the Treasury, then dies young in a duel.
Seriously, who needs fiction?!
