Sound and Vision

Readers idly curious to know what I’m reading are due some satisfaction. At the moment, Anthony Barrett’s Caligula: The Corruption of Power and Rod Dreher’s Crunchy Cons are under way. I’ll post a few thoughts on the latter in a couple of days. Galleys of Nir Rosen’s In the Belly of the Green Bird: The Triumph of the Martyrs in Iraq have also come into my hands — a first-rate journalistic account of the Iraq insurgency’s beginnings.

iTunes yielded up “100,000 Fireflies” by the Magnetic Fields just a minute ago, which will serve as an admirable music recommendation for the day.
