October 22, 2014, Wednesday morning -- Reading Armistead Maupin

Early morning on the BART platform

She is reading Tales of the City, by Armistead Maupin (my flash washed out the picture).  It's the San Francisco Public Library's One City One Book book for 2014, but that's not why she's reading it.  The reason is that she was reading a collection of essays by Joan Didion which mentioned San Francisco, and as a result, she remembered that she had this book (about San Francisco) on her shelf.

One of the best books she's read lately has been Freedom, by Jonathan Franzen.
