"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

Maps and Legends

Book #26 on my reading list was Michael Chabon's non-fiction collection Maps and Legends (not to be confused with the R.E.M. song).

The essays included in M&L range from literary critiques of Sherlock Holmes, The Road, and graphics novels to memoir-y stories from Chabon's past. Some of the essays make for interesting reads, but as a collection it's probably best reserved for only the most diehard of Chabon fans. Gotta dig the Jordan Crane cover art though.
