I periodically give myself a big fat book party, reading multiple books at once. I’ve already finished Maladies, but it has yet to leave the party in my head.

So, the guest list thus far:

The Emperor of All Maladies

Cure: A Journey into the Science of Mind over Body


The Art of Memoir

And because every party needs somebody who’s just plain fun…

American Gods

Of course, in the grand scheme of things, viewing American Gods as the “fun” person at a party makes me realize just how heavy my head is right now. I mean, for God’s sake, the sample chapter I’m working on right now is Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst. Yikes.
