Am reading Ivan Doig's Last Bus to Wisdom. It is so charming and he has such an original style and it was his last book -- I recommend it.
Also listening to Sherman's and Jess' podcast called "A Tiny Sense of Accomplishment", their repartee about writing life, and then true art when Sherman read about saying goodbye to his dog. He always breaks my heart.

Reservation Blues by Sherman Alexie. He combines jokes, myth, poetry, Indian customs, music into this novel inspired by bluesman Robert Johnson.
Demigods on Speedway by my daughter, Aurelie Sheehan, out this month.
Rob Lowe's Love Life. He is a dynamic story teller, compassionate, and devoted family man.

New realization: Of the current fiction writers, my favorites are Native American -- Sherman Alexie (Blasphemy) and Louise Erdrich (The Round House).
