Strange Piece of Paradise

I am careening to the end of a rather large paperback book: Strange Piece of Paradise, by Terri Jentz. It has gotten a lot of play in the last year. It's the personal story of a woman who was attacked while camping in Oregon by a man with an axe. After many years of quiet, Terri felt herself drawn to her history in an effort to understand what she had become, and this book is the result.

I both like it and dislike it. I've been writing a review of it, which I will finish when I turn the last page and will post here. I haven't yet decided whether I will release it in the wild, keep it, or give it to a specific person.

I heard a radio interview the other day with David Arquette in which he mentioned that he and Courtney Cox own and live in a "John Lautner" house! I immediately thought of you!

Well, they sold the house. But we (the john lautner foundation) got a Christmas card from them this year, which was nice. You probably know that Courteney Cox planned to become an architect. Her interest was genuine and I have to say she has good taste!
