I wandered around the library looking for a book to get for the Cali trip--Super Sad True Love Story was checked out. I settled on Coffee and Kung Fu by Karen Brichoux because it was lightweight and I liked the title. I started the book on the BART and finished it up yesterday.
The essence of Coffee and Kung Fu is loneliness. The things we do when we are lonely. It is about the moment when you at your life and decide if you can continue on the same path for the next 70 years.
I don't read much fiction anymore, but this one was a winner. Pick this up for a great weekend read.
