And Then We Set His Hair on Fire

I recently finished Enchantments, a charming Italian novella by Linda Ferri. I picked it up serendipitously at the Harvard Book Shop on trip to Boston last month and loved it. Ferri co-wrote the script to the Cannes-prize-winning film The Son's Room.

In other news, I've made it to page 970 of War & Peace.

I'm currently enjoying And Then We Set His Hair On Fire: Insights and Accidents from a Hall-of-Fame Career in Advertising, a funny, delightful read by Phil Dusenberry, former chairman of BBDO North America. It's not your typical business read--it's actually quite fun, and, as the title suggests, insightful!

For a local book club of which I'm a member, I'm also reading Guns, Germs & Steel by Jared Diamond.
