Excitement!...

Well, what passes for it ,in my circumscribed lil' life...There are some books one really has to have, money or no, and my cutprice copy of Aline Kominsky-Crumb's NEED MORE LOVE has just arrived. I was expecting a large-format paperback. but it's a lovely, chunky, arty thing like THE CRUMB HANDBOOK. I loove it!
 I've always been a huge Aline fan; it's partly a weird, envious 'coulda-been-me' thing... We're so close in age and early suburban-wasteland experience. Now, she's a 'stah', married to, and mother to stahs, and I'm a quickly-crumbling OAP who can't afford a day in Brighton, but I can vicariously enjoy her cultural apotheoisis.Yeh, such is life...
