End of summer reading…

Tried Ephron’s Wallflower at the Orgy,” a collection of interviews of mostly dead celebrities (they were alive when she interviewed them–hee hee) and couldn’t get into it, probably because I’m not an insanely well-connected, fabulously wealthy Jewish New Yorker who hobnobs with the elite­ and dines and shops at all the finest places.

However, I am enjoying Robert Edsel’s brilliantly researched and compelling “Saving Italy: The Race to Rescue a Nation’s Treasures from the Nazis,” and am looking forward to the Clooney-Damon film “Monuments Men,” based on Edsel’s previous book “The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History,” due for theatrical release Dec. 18.
