I asked him what he has been reading. His reply:
Mostly I'm reading the Bible, because I have been blogging it for Slate. I'm in the Book of Ezekiel now, which is the humane, stoner portion of the Old Testament (a testament that is more often pretty ruthless).
For kicks I'm reading Absurdistan, which I'm about a year late getting to, but does feel hilariously, creepily current given the craziness of Russia. I actually don't like it as it deserves to be liked--I'm worn out with the genre of post-Soviet absurdism (Jonathan Safran Foer, etc.).
