"I'm reading a book called 'The Death of Vishnu,' by Manil Suri. It's set in Europe in the 1900s. The main character, Vishnu, is a homeless drunk who lives in this family's entryway. The family is expected to take care of him as his health fails, but they are all bitter about it."

"I'm reading an autobiography called 'The Dirt,' by the members of Motley Crue. It's pretty much the entire history of the band from day one. Reading some of the things they've written makes me want to go to church."
