Ciao, America! by Beppe Severgnini

Ciao, America! coverFinished Ciao, America!, by Beppe Severgnini this weekend. This was a impulse purchase at Elliott Bay Books a month or two ago. Every time I buy large numbers of books, I make sure one of them is more or less at random. That was this one. Basically, it's an Italian's observations on America and Americans. I didn't find it all that interesting as a whole, though some of his observations were humorous and witty. Might use (refer to) some of them in my own writing. But not worth buying. You already know most of this stuff.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
