  • Heidi Pitlor: The Birthdays

    Heidi Pitlor: The Birthdays
    I'm loving this story about 3 siblings who gather to celebrate their dad's 75th birthday. It's frightening how many similarities there are with the Millers in the novel, and the Denise real-life siblings.

  • Susan Choi: American Woman

    Susan Choi: American Woman
    I'm reading this because I saw it on SuperSpecialK's bookshelf once and she told me I should read it. I'm having a bit of a hard time getting into it, but I think I'm supposed to.

  • Ayelet Waldman: Love and Other Impossible Pursuits

    Ayelet Waldman: Love and Other Impossible Pursuits
    Maybe it's because I like this author's husband's writing so much--but I've lapped up both of Ayelet Waldman's novels eagerly.

  • Martha Sherrill: The Ruins of California

    Martha Sherrill: The Ruins of California
    I loved this book, and burned through it in a day. A good read for many reasons, but particularly if you have a soft spot for San Francisco or California in general.

Ah. The Rabbit. In 1982, my grandmother broke her hip at Thanksgiving and couldn't drive. My mother then drove her Cadillac. (Because all grandmothers drove Cadillacs.) I drove her Rabbit. I was 16 and it was my first car. Come spring break 1983 I was moving out of my mother's house and into my father's house. On that last day I went to drop Josh Soven off at his house. While stopped at a stop sign, a Bell Atlantic truck slammed into our rear end, crushing the car.

I move out an hour later and got my dad's old Chevy Citation. A truly rotten car, but at least it was driveable. The Rabbit wasn't. Bell Atlantic paid to have it repaired, because they were at fault, not me. My mother never believed that.

David, I just test drove one the other day. I am now 100% convinced that it's the car for me.
