receding pointillism

Up now at Salon: my review of Alison Bechdel's graphic novel Fun Home, which is pretty much my favorite book I've read this year.

It's a depressing thing to cook for guests who don't show up--four people were supposed to come for brunch this morning, and none of them arrived (have since heard from two, who had a perfectly good excuse). I mean, more scrambled tofu with collard greens, brown basmati rice and raspberry-chipotle sauce for us, but still.

The Raconteurs' album is growing on me quickly, especially "Yellow Sun," which reminds me pleasantly of Uncle Wiggly.

Why I love Peaches: an advance copy of her new album arrived here yesterday, and it's called Impeach My Bush. Took me a good two hours to notice the "impeach"/"peach" connection, too.
