It’s time for summer reading! I’m so excited! I need suggestions – especially for memoirs and funny novels. A friend lent me The Starship and the Canoe and I kept remembering it was borrowed right as I was about to give it to other people. Plenty of good space/ocean metaphors in this one – it’s about physicist Freeman Dyson and his treehouse-dwelling son George, how smart they both are, and their various attempts to get far ouuuuttttt there.
