here’s a little something that i was listening to at work last week.

unrelated to that, i’m currently readying young man with a horn by dorothy baker, which i picked up at a surprisingly good bookshop in macroom, co. cork, a couple of weeks ago (‘surprising’ as there weren’t actually very many books; small but very well curated).  i also bought the curry guy veggie, and my wife bought something as well.  anyway, the blurb on the back says ymwah is “widely regarded as the first jazz novel, and it pulses with the music that defined an era”.  i’ll take that on faith, but in any event, i’m enjoying it immensely and do recommend it.  it’s a nice little edition from the nyrb classics; i’ve not seen many of their books before, and will have to look through their catalog.  perhaps they’ll be an alternative to persephone books, whose selections i can definitely recommend as well.
