A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Tue. 6/21/11 9:11am trouble:

good day earthlings! today's art is by Lygia Clark and Helio Oiticica: they perform Diálogo de Manos whereby their wrists are linked by a Möbius loop. She is brazilian and linked to the tropicalia peeps, although more of a constructivist herself...

“Helio and I are like a glove. He is the outside of the glove, very much linked to the exterior world. I am the inside. And the two of us exist from the moment there is a hand which puts on the glove.” – Lygia Clark
  Tue. 6/21/11 9:16am pierre:

It has been a while since i came here to say a little : bonjour !

  Tue. 6/21/11 10:09am Bryan:

  Tue. 6/21/11 10:42am still b/p:

I wisht I had time to go out and just watch the last light this evening.

Tangent Time: A few guitar bars in Los Mozos de Monleon sounded to me like "Love, This Is My Song, " the song that was a hit for Petula Clark and was written by Charlie Chaplin.
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:46am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

How about The Rain Before It Falls by Jonathan Coe?
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:47am Lister Bill:

Amazing book - The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival (Vintage Departures) by John Vaillant
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:48am Adrian in London:

A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore was enjoyable last year. ANything by her is worth reading, to be honest.
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:48am Vivian:

For our book club, I selected 'On the Road'. Next in the lineup, Rob Sheffield's 'Talking To Girls About Duran Duran' which someone on this messageboard mentioned last week!
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:51am βrian:

I just read a remark Truman Capote is supposed to have made regarding Kerouac: "That's not writing; that's typing."
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:51am listener james from westwood:

science friday on npr had a list of science/nonfiction books, suggested by science authors & listeners; all books from the broadcast listed here: http://www.sciencefriday.com/program/archives/201105202
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:53am hamburger:

I never got 'on the road' :3
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:53am James:

Peter Bognanni's novel The House of Tomorrow details an unlikely friendship between Sebastian, a boy who has lived in a geodesic dome with his grandmother, and Jared a heart-transplant patient with a passion for punk music. A terrific story of the power of music to bring people together. This will make you want to start a band, like hearing a Ramones song for the first time.
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:53am listener james from westwood:

the top list is somewhat more current/oriented toward recent releases, but there are probably some gaps to fill from older books in the second list from viewers/commenters, too.
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:53am Jennique:

Summer books I highly recommend:
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
Mr. Vertigo by Paul Auster
With by Donald Harington
and my old standard Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:55am Stu:

Kiittos ! " Purge" by Sofie Oksanen , She is amazing !
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:56am Neg-guh-tor:

'Renegade' by Mark E. Smith. Great. He was a tarot card reader for a while for extra money and very interested in the occult. Imagine that!
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:56am Prince Philip formerly known as a cypher:

Verwy well done trouble and what do you do for a living? Please do not ask one that question. Ones memory is getting frightfully vague.
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:56am Lucas:

"The wild detectives" Roberto Bolaño.
  Tue. 6/21/11 10:59am Brian in UK:

Any by Niccolo Ammaniti will make you laugh & cry sometimes at the same time.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:02am hamburger:

how many books do you peoples go through in an average year?
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:04am βrian:

"It was inevitable: the scent of bitter almonds always reminded him of the fate of unrequited love."
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:04am Jennique:

Wow, great pick DJ Icepack! Sleigh Bells kicks it!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:06am Brian in UK:

Libraries for EVER. F**k Television. It's like a demanding child; unlike radio.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:06am still b/p:

Ah, good. I was just thinking of this song a few minutes ago.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:07am Jennique:

Ah Brian - quoting that book just makes me smile. :)
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:08am Adrian in London:

Has anyone here read anything by Steve Erickson? Not the fantasy writer but the LA novelist who wrote Tours of the Black Clock and Amnesiascope. HI work is occasionally compared with Paul Auster's but is much more spectacular and mind-warping. His characters crop up in various books and his take on LA is magical. There's really no other writer like him.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:12am Brian in UK:

Gombrich is such a good History primer for all ages. Then you can move on to his History of Art.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:13am stefica:

i've tried to get through bolano's "the savage detectives" without success yet; but 2666 was great!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:15am stefica:

i recommend "the tiger's wife" by tea obreht.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:18am maja:

i've never read anything by Niccolo Ammaniti but that's gonna change now.
Brian you've made me curious.
Trouble i love your show!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:20am Lucas:

@stefica: i havent read 2666, but many people told me it's great!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:24am ffrr:

2666 is a chore. Sometimes monotonous, othertimes wonderful. Not a summer read, but a good one.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:26am Adrian in London:

Oh, Ammaniti wrote Non Ho Pauro; I saw the film version and liked it very much.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:27am Guuzbourg:

Morning trouble. Thanks for playing Nicolas Comment.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:29am trouble:

o good morning guuzbourg a.k.a mr go on vacation and leave us hanging... we get nervous when you don't post. or maybe just i do. thanks for all the fabbbb music you connect me with via fillessourires.com
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:29am trouble:

thank you maja!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:31am J J:

Wow. Comments are reading like some Amazon Listmania thing. Summer reads the topic? Blue Movie by Terry Southern. Found it in a $1 bin. Hilariously bawdy. An award winning Hollywood director decides he wants to shoot the greatest porn film ever.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:32am Brian in UK:

J J better send that one to Station Manager!!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:35am Kenzo:

Image: Katherine Hepburn heading away on the train back home at the very end of Summertime.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:36am Adrian in London:

I know you weren't after page-turners but for trashy can't-put-em-down books I really like Lee Child. The character, Reacher, is a 6ft5 well-built ex-Army bloke; teeny tiny Tom Cruise has been lined up to play him in a film.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:37am Ben W:

London loves you, Trouble!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:40am trouble:

and i love london!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:42am Lucas:

This song is great!!!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:45am stefica:

i read 2666 in the summer.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:46am βrian:

"J'ai faim ! J'ai faim !"
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:46am David Baker:

St Albans ( a few miles north of London, England) loves you Trouble xxx
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:47am Lucas:

@Stefica: it was a nice reading under the sun? The wild detectives, it depends on the language youre reading i think
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:48am Mike East:

I was listening on the ride into the city. Great show, Trouble. Get that kid some lunch!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:48am Brian in UK:

Brian Mathew was doing the intro to the Kinks if anyone is interested.
Frightfully good show, trouble.
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:55am trouble:

st albans we love you!
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:56am trouble:

thank you brian in UK. that bbc cut goes out to penelope fitzgerald and "Human Voices". i must like that book a lot to use capital letters...
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:57am βrian:

In Vermont, that's pronounced "Snall Buns."
  Tue. 6/21/11 11:58am Brian in UK:

By the way I live in Watford 'bout six miles from St Albans. Crazy eh!
  Tue. 6/21/11 12:01pm stefica:

Lucas, Yes, in English it is published as Savage Detectives. I don't read under the sun, alas. It is too bright!
  Thu. 6/23/11 9:59pm Leigh:

'Synthetic Worlds' - Esther Leslie, about the invention of neon during WWII in Germany
  Fri. 6/24/11 6:01pm Marie:

Confederacy of Dunces (hilarity set in New Orleans), The Color of Water (crime, detective, mystery set in Sicily), and maybe most summer-oriented of all is Midsummer Night by Uwe Timm (is translated from German, set in the newly united Berlin!)
