From the Briefly Noted Section of The July 6 & 13 New Yorker

Books Self Is Interested in Reading: bios of Bigfoot and Joni Mitchell, a novel about a Bay Area “rock and soul” band and a suspense novel set in upstate New York:

    Why does Eric hate his sister? Why can he remember so little of his childhood, and why won’t the woman in the hardware store sell him a gun?
    “You can only paint the town red so many times before you begin to bleed.”
  • Joshua Blu Buhs’ Bigfoot
    “By imagining themselves into the body of Sasquatch, white working-class men could imagine themselves as black, as women, could come in contact with their own souls.”
    (Joni) “Mitchell’s ability to articulate the sublime frequently reduces Mercer to a kind of fan-girl gush . . . “

    I have this Joni Mitchell book, can’t wait to read it. Girls Like Us about her and Carole King and Carly Simon was fantastic.

    I’m a BIG Joni Mitchell fan. I have “Hejira” — must have listened to it over 50 times!

    Thanks for mentioning GIRLS LIKE US: I’m going to add it to my reading list!
