I put down “Maximum City”. Whether the material in it is true or not, I found it to be terribly sensational in tone. I intend on going back to it from time to time, but it’s not a book I think I can read from start to finish. I picked up “Confederacy of Dunces”, and couldn’t get past the 1st chapter. So I put THAT down as well, and started reading “Good Muslim, Bad Muslim”, by Mahmood Mamdani. I’m only about 40 pages into it, but I already highly recommend the book. More on the book as I get further into it.
