What I'm reading

Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam by Nick Turse
There were some files as thick as a phonebook, with the most detailed and nightmarish descriptions; other files, paper-thin, hinting at terrible events that had received no follow-up attention; and just about everything in between. As I leafed through them that day, I knew one thing almost instantly: they documented a nightmare war that is essentially missing from our understanding of the Vietnam conflict.
A well-documented, very disturbing, indeed horrific, perspective on "the American war."

Also started what looks like an excellent bio of Edward Albee.
