Just read this Biography of J.D. Salinger by Paul Alexander. Interesting stuff. There is a new movie and a Biography coming out soon supposedly with incredible revelations. I guess it will be like looking at a wreck, you don't want to but your curiosity will win out. This author's thesis is that Salinger's isolation was in itself a calculated publicity stunt to further his allure.
Picked this one up at the library, some interesting recipes. Will be testing a few out this weekend.
Also at the Library, Hitchcock. I always wanted to see San Francisco based on seeing Vertigo. Maybe someday I will go there.
Beer for the weekend is Sam Adams Summer Ale.
Lousy weather, time for indoor BBQ. George Foreman Grill with Sausages, Sliders and Hot Dogs. Doing a Lemon marinade for oven-baked Chicken Thighs. Sides are salad and BBQ Beans with Bourbon.
Heard this on XM Radio today, what a treat. The Nearness of You by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. Written by Ned Washington and Hoagy Carmichael.
