On Saturday, at an antiquarian book fair, I picked up three volumes of cartoons by Peter Arno, from the 1930's and 40's. No doubt many on this forum have enjoyed Mr. Arno's urbane and sophisticated work. Anyway, that's what I read last night.

It's a bit cliche, especially with the movie and all, but I'm reading In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. It's been on my "to read" list for a long, long time, and I've finally gotten around to it. It's wonderfully descriptive. Capote had a true feel for the people and places about which he was writing.
