I Wear the Black Hat by Chuck Klosterman
I read this one for a second time in the Chana Hot Springs area of Alaska in an eighteen hour period waiting for the rain to subside. I still really enjoy Klosterman’s turn of phrase and cocktail-party parlor-tricks with pseudo-logical pop-culture legerdemain. His discussion of villains and why they matter is delightful and insightful, even upon a second reading. Big chunks of this book were read aloud to The Professor while we waited for a flooded stream that had swallowed our road to subside. I think she enjoyed it.
