Book Lust

I just heard another interview with Nancy Pearl on NPR. This time she was reviewing books to read on a rainy day (they've had 23 days straight of rain in Seattle). She was leaning toward science fiction and spy mysteries, so I was not enticed. Then she started to describe an autobiography which is the first volume of a projected four volume set. The writer talks about his adolescence and she read a few sentences saying that she absolutely loved his sentence structure. It was so cool. I can't remember the phrase now, but it was so surprisingly descriptive. I'll go on and find the author. I've been wanting an excuse to visit the library.
