“I just finished ‘The Sirens of Titan,’ by Kurt Vonnegut. It’s about the meaning of life and how we’re all controlled by aliens from another planet.”

James Thurber and the short story,’ by Virgil R. Albertini. It’s a collection of short stories by James Thurber. It’s coming out of a different generation and it’s interesting to read the social commentary of the times. And his cartoons are pretty funny.”

The Map of Love,’ by Ahdaf Soueif. It’s about two families who didn’t realize they were connected. One is French and the other is Egyptian, and the book follows them both through the end of the British occupation of Egypt to present day.”

New York Days,’ by Willie Morris. He was the youngest editor of Harper’s Magazine ever, and it’s about the time he spent in New York and him meeting some of the literary geniuses of the time.”

Children of Men,’ by P.D. James. The book is drastically different than the movie. The book focuses more on (the hero’s) relationship with the last child-bearing woman and less on his mission to save her.”

Right you are Jordan, people should not judge the book by the movie as they are so different. I loved the book but was not too thrilled with the movie but have always loved Clive Owen. So watched it with disappointment.
