feed them!

Via Callie, the LA Weekly book critics list their favorite undernourished books of the year. I must need some more coffee because I thought the description of The Descendants was actually a description of the Raymond Chandler biography with ol' Ray coping with his wayward teenage daughters after his wife falls into a coma. The subtitle is "Raymond Chandler and the Woman He Loved" - I didn't know about "his much older wife, Cissy" and "their obsessive, peripatetic marriage." She could have been in a coma, for all I knew. Anyway, it's nice to see Listen Again on the list, the latest publication from the Experience Music Project.
