NYTBR 10 June 2007 (Skipping Around, My Bad)

Self had the NY Times Book Review of last Sunday (3 June) all laid out and ready to post, but somehow, in the intervening week, clipped reviews got lost.

Self knows they are somewhere under huge pile of papers and books on her desk, but since this is Saturday, and self does not want to be reminded about how disorganized she is, she’s just going to go ahead and post last week’s NYTBR selections. So, without further ado (and while hubby is watching with rapt interest Richard Gere in American Gigolo, even though he indicated 10 minutes ago that we were going to “a park”), here are my picks from the 10 June issue of The New York Times Book Review:

(1) After reading Caroline Weber‘s review of Tina Brown‘s The Diana Chronicles:

Tina Brown’s The Diana Chronicles

(2) After reading Tom Bissell’s review of Ryszard Kapuscinski‘s last book, Travels with Herodotus:

The following books by Ryszard Kapuscinski:

(3) After reading Christopher Dickey’s review of Roy Blount Jr.’s Long Time Leaving: Dispatches from Up South:
