The Final Cut, a compilation of blogs about the arts - books, movies, plays, music, etc. - has just been published. It's a 205-page paperback containing 64 mini-essays dating back to 2006. No politics, no memories of growing up in Dorchester, no travelogues, no sports talk, no discourses on the passing scene in Maine - just commentary on the arts, as watched, read, and listened to over a long lifetime. If this sounds like your thing, you might enjoy sharing the journey with me. The book is available at www.lulu.com.
