No I don't read many biographies really. Did they discuss his relationship with Mario and him living at his place a lot?

Yeah they discuss it a fair share. It's a really interesting read, not really a bio, just a chronicle of the day to day of his rookie year.

The poems are really spontaneous and random which gives them a vitality or freshness. One reason I like O'Hara's poetry so much is he is so open emotionally and takes such an honest and unrestrained approach to his emotion. He basically has no shame or filter which is necessary to be a truly great poet.

Moving on to this:


Just finished this. Bauer is a very effective writer and his arguments against the use of foreign aid and egalitarian economic policy is pretty convincing. I especially enjoyed his logic approach and attitude about the misuse of statistics by economists.

Completely forgot about this thread.

Anyways, right now I'm kind of in American history mode. In the last month or so finished "the fiery trial: lincoln & slavery", "american lion: andrew jackson" and "how the other half lives". Looking for couple of new books related to American history (preferably between 1800-1900), so help me out American brahs. I never really took American history formally in school (not required here) so any essential reads I should make sure not to skip?

Edmund Morris wrote a 3 book series on Teddy Roosevelt that I've heard is really good.
