QOTY and Books of the Year

 My Quote Of The Year is from Freeman Hunt:

Doesn’t anybody say ‘Fuck off’ anymore?


The best books I read this year were

Fiction: Prelude to a Certain Midnight, Gerald Kersh. A mordant novel of murder, from the 40s.

Non-fiction: The Club,  Leo Damrosch. Johnson, Boswell, Smith, Burke, and friends in 18th century London.

I didn’t watch a lot of movies but the best was Ford vs Ferrari.

David Diamond, a symphony

 Symphony 2
