Full of It by Tim Hall.
Yes, we know, we've been reading like mad lately, and we think it has something to do with our lapsed subscription to the New Yorker, some ramped-up travel, the season finales of any number of the endless television shows we watch, and maybe most importantly, the really excellent books that keep landing in our mailbox. Today we finished Full of It by good friend Tim Hall, and here's what we think you need to know, it's a breezy, fun read; a mash note to what seems more and more like a bygone era of underground newspapers, not to mention a nearly pre-historic, pre-dot com New York City; and maybe best of all, a great companion piece to Tim's previous novel, TBWCYL, Inc. favorite, Half Empty. Nice work man, what can we expect next? And when?
