Birds of a Feather

What we’ve been reading and watching November 19, 2009

Reading

K: Eavan Boland’s poetry, How Professors Think (a re-read – one of my favorite assigned readings from last year and quite apropos to my current job), New Sudden Fiction (really, really great, really, really short stories), and some Pulitzer Prize-winning articles.
C: Economics, Sunset Limited, and On Food and Cooking (through which he learns all sorts of little tidbits like how to slow-cook a Jerusalem artichoke, or about Chinese aged eggs).

Watching

The Wire (just started Season 3); 30 Rock; Ugly Betty. Also last weekend I forced C to watch New in Town with me. We both agreed it was a not-very-good (actually pretty bad) movie, but the difference is that I still got teary despite the poor quality, whereas C did not.
