Book of the Month: “A Gentleman in Moscow”, by Amor Towles

Editor’s note:  This historic fiction is beautifully written.  Towles adds well-researched context along with poignant social commentary to make it the best book I’ve read in many years.  I’m planning to re-read it so that I might pick up more of the type of excerpts you will see below.  I noted at least a half dozen worth remembering on my first read.

Editor’s note:  A month late but still incredibly funny, here is satirist Barry’s view of a very crazy year.  It’s a long read but for fans of sarcasm and having fun with truth, it’s worth it.  Thanks to Carl Falb for passing this onto me!

 

My favorite jab:  “In sports, the superb U.S. women’s national soccer team, following years of hard work and sacrifice, wins its fourth World Cup and a first prize of $4 million, or about $200,000 per player. Later in the month, a 16-year-old high school student named Kyle Giersdorf wins a Fortnite video-game tournament. His prize — really — is $3 million. “I’m so happy,” says Kyle. “Everything I’ve done in the grind has all paid off and it’s just insane.”
