Re: So...what is everybody reading now? (part Deux)

"Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," by Johnathan Safran Foer (authoer of Everything Is Illuminated)
"Most smart people cannot watch most TV, because it has generally been a condescending medium, explaining everything immediately, offering no ambiguities, and using dialogue that simplifies and mitigates against the idiosyncratic ways in which people in different worlds actually communicate. It eventually requires that characters from different places talk the same way as the viewer. This, of course, sucks." - David Simon
