Quick and interesting read. I'd heard the overview, but didn't realize the era that it occurred. 
Also, this was loaned to me in paper form. It was the first paper book I've read in a few years. I'm struck by how different it makes the experience, but also how the pros and cons stack up.  Maybe I'm just pragmatic, but while there are some serious positives to a paper book, in my ledger the Kindle wins hands down.

I'm personally more of a crocheter. I'm probably not manly enough for knitting.  ;-)

Canada’s ‘Superwoman’: Margot Kidder  These anecdotes about Kidder reminded me of how Hemingway lived (artistic fame, physical danger, too much sex, liberal causes, accumulated damage physical and mental...), and of this great book by Clancy Sigal, a blacklisted Hollywood agent and screen writer.
 

People who play that hard tend to get hurt.

Hmm, I read too many books at once. But this one is going on the list. In a dystopian mood and currently reading Void Star among my other titles. Always a good sign when the Amazon reviews are all over the damn map.

i have the whole series of books on my kindle. and i could only make it through 1/4 of the first book because i couldn't keep people straight. i originally wanted to read them all before watching the series. yeah, not happening.

 
Yeah that's a challenge. I stopped trying to keep them straight, thinking I'd gather it all up along the way, and by the end I sort of have it. I think part of the "Game" is how intertwined the houses are, and trying to figure out which way allegiances will fall with each new development. Then I looked at the Appendix where he sort of lays out family trees and I see there are more families to come that he hasn't even hinted at yet. Oy.
