Almost a Book Review
This was originally going to be a post about "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." Not the movie, which we all know and love, but the book. As I tried to write a review of it, though, I realized it was more about first times. You see, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" (more oz info than you ever thought you'd want) is the first book I ever read for myself. The summer between 2nd and 3rd grade we had just moved to upstate NY, and I carried armloads of Oz books home from the library. Their innoncence, joy, and absurdity appealled to me, and the artwork was beautiful. The lasting influence is that I now prefer to read Sci-Fi and Fantasy books, and I enjoy inflicting puns on family and friends. This is a great book to read with kids, and then compare to the movie, because it introduces the idea that movies and tv don't always get the story right, although in this case it's fairly true to the spirit of the story.

How I realized that I was trying to write the wrong post was through a post-concert musing as I walked back to my car. You see, I had just seen Duran Duran in concert, and I realized that the things you love first stay with you, no matter how much you change over the years.

My first book was "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz," a wonderfully American fairy tale. The first music I bought for myself was actually three albums I bought as part of a fundraiser in 9th grade--Duran Duran's Rio, The Police's Synchronicity, and Big Country's The Crossing. I still love those albums, and they've influenced what I listen to till this day.

What was your first book? What was your first album? And I don't mean what did other people buy for you--what did you choose for yourself?

And seriously, check out "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." It's a great introduction to American Literature, Fantasy, and Fairy Tales. (And it's fun to read with your kids.)

zorkmidden in Discarded Lies:
Maybe she should send George a percentage of the money
Kiran Desai is 35 years old, she was born in India and has been living in America since she was fifteen. She's the winner of the Booker Prize, the prestigious literary award which is open only to British and Commonwealth citizens, and she "credits" Bush for her prize. If you want to call an insult to this country a "credit".
The Man Booker Prize is open only to British and Commonwealth citizens and Indian-born Desai has yet to apply for a U.S. passport, although she has lived in New York for 20 years.

"George Bush won once and he won the second time and I couldn't bring myself to (apply)," Desai said late last month in an interview in Toronto as she voiced her disapproval of the president's foreign policy.

"So I really owe George Bush my Booker, in an odd way. It's really very funny."
Let's see, she's been eligible for citizenship for fifteen years but she didn't do it because of George Bush? Talk about cheap shots...
