Reading Putting on the Ritz, by Joe Keenan, who wrote the Frazier sitcom. Before this he read Blue Heaven, which is part of the same series. The series, he says, which is about high society New York, is humorous and filled with plot twists.

His favorite book is A Home at the End of the World, by Michael Cunningham, which he found life-changing. It's about coming to age and dealing with self-acceptance. Another good book by Cunningham--Specimen Days, which is set in New York City during three different time periods--the industrial revolution, present day and the future. The futuristic New York is more of an amusement park where you, for instance, pay for the experience of getting mugged.

Something else he's read recently--The American Journal of Dance Therapy. He is a dancer and is taking classes in this.
