April 23, 2016, Saturday afternoon -- Reading Alysia Abbot

In the Mission District
She is reading Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father, by Alysia Abbott. It's about a girl whose mother dies when she is two and she moves to San Francisco with her father who is bisexual and becomes a member of the amazing cultural scene that San Francisco was in the 70s and 80s. This book was recommended to her by a friend.

Her favorite author is Rebecca Solnit. The first book of Solnit's that she read was The Faraway Nearby. Then she read Wanderlust:A History of Walking and A Field Guide to Getting Lost.

Something else good she's read recently is Between You & Me, by Mary Norris.
