Uh, Patti, I don't think Amy Winehouse is actually reading. Actually, the only literary association that comes to mind is Doris Lessing's The Cleft. Hmm, wonder why?

I certainly like Amy's music but she does look a mess. She's a troubled woman but a very good artist.

Bish has it slightly off...that's THE HARVARD LAMPOON's ALLIGATOR...the NATIONAL LAMPOON wouldn't be founded till the 1970s, admittedly by HARVARD LAMPOON folks.

A day late (but only by 35 minutes!) - I tried to finish it earlier, but sometimes life just won't comply. Anyway, just thought I would share this collection of True Crime I found at a bookstore, which included pieces by some of my favs - Craig Rice, Jim Thompson, Day Keene, Harry Whittington, to name just a few.

I'm not convinced that Amy's much of a reader. A singer, okay. A reader? Not so much.

I'm not so sure, Bill. She seems to be willing to crawl to get to the book.

Maybe she's on her way to reading. By, uh, stretching first.

Muriel Spark, that is...though such a protean talent can seem plural.

I remember picking up a cheap copy of MURDER PLUS, mostly for the Robert Bloch essay on Gein and PSYCHO...

Amy Winehouse might've thought the books were smokable, particularly the ones across the table from where she had been...or perhaps she heard yet another potential drowning victim just offshore there...
