    after waiting for library requests to come in for quite a while, a whole bunch came in at once.

    i read 'one' by david karp and 'shooters' by terrill lankford, liked both.

    i have the following out now:

    'angry moon' by lankford which i'm reading and like
    'the resurrectionist' by jack o'connell which i started and like. i switched to angry moon when it came in cos it's an interlibrary loan and can't be renewed, unlike the others. i've yet to start 'the prone gunman' by j.p. manchette and 'the getaway man' by a. vachss

    and the library tells me 2 more are in now, 'to die in california' by thornburgh and 'things they carried' by tim o'brien.

    any comments on what should be read first, not counting the interlibrary priority i mentioned.

    i had taken out 'tree of smoke' by denis johnson while waiting for the above and started it and tho i liked it, between the slowness and length of it and all the above coming in, i returned it. may or may not ever return to it. i liked his 'nobody moves' but there's just too much to read.

    happy passover, easter, final four, weekend, spring and reading, s
