Things I Don't Read Every Day

A very short first-person account from the daughter of the gentleman who illustrated Abbie Hoffman's Steal This Book. (She was just establishing her parentage. The account had nothing to do with the book.) If I haven't mentioned Abbie Hoffman or Steal This Book yet in my (dear god) going into nine years of this blog [can that be right?], shame on me. Both were very influential on me as a yute. So thanks to the illustrator and his coauthor, and congratulations to his daughter.

I didn't read this book quite as much as Catcher in the Rye, and I'd be curious to see which has held up better over time for me. Having peered through the latter a year or so ago, Mr. Hoffman may be the default winner. I could be wrong.
