Hurston or Hemmingway? Paris or Harlem? Where shall I go tonight?
I’m just as crazy shopping for books as I am clothes :-/
Here’s what I recently got:
A moveable feast by Ernest Hemmingway
Dust tracks on a road by Zora Neale Hurston
Palo Alto by James Franco
The price of everything by Eduardo Porter
American design published by MoMA
A useful dream African Photography
There’s more but, just like with clothes I often buy books that I don’t immediately consume, they sit there in the closet or on the shelf until the right moment. And now what shall I read first?
Hurston or Hemmingway? It’s like holding two pairs of shoes in a quandary. Hurton or Hemmingway, the heady days of Paris in the 20’s or Harlem Renaissance both enormously attractive to me at the moment.
