    finished The Measures Between Us by Ethan Hauser.  Stale and underwhelming -- a disappointment considering the good things I had read about it.

    Blew through Brewster by Mark Slouka.  Maybe the best thing I have read this year.  Beautifully written story of high school friends in the New York exurban town of the same name between 1968 and 1970.  My response to Brewster may have been colored by the fact that these people are my exact contemporaries, and I had friends who could have stepped out of the pages of this book, but writing this good and true is pretty rare.

    Struggled through Turing's Delirium by Edmundo Paz Soldan.  Billed as a South American blend of cyberpunk and political thriller, there is very little cyber, no punk and not much thriller.  The less said the better.

    Have just started Crux by Ramez Naam, hot off the presses sequel to Nexus, the very entertaining SF thriller about which I posted a month ago.  Fingers crossed that Crux is as much fun as its predecessor.
