21. Steve Lopez, The Soloist

A series of linked essays by a newspaper columnist, detailing his relationship with a homeless musician. Really quite good, managing to be compassionate and plainspoken without soft-peddling or glossing over the complexities of the situation.

I should go upstairs and get the next book now, but the urge to nap is rising.

Must look for this. I have loved Steve Lopez ever since he first came to Philadelphia to start writing his column. The second MOVE incident -- the one where the city firebombed a house and burned down an entire block -- occurred when he'd been there for something like two days.
Wow.

I have to admit, I was rather charmed by his manner of writing.
