Bought an amazing book for myself - a really great graphic book (or is that two
graphic books in one volume?) by Joe Sacco
. Brilliant. If you've never read any graphic novel, this is where you can start. And do get his Palestine
Couldn't resist getting a tray for the house, with Lichtenstein
's comic work on it. Looking at his work in its full size shakes your pants off! Wow!!!
And, finally, a really lovely single-rose vase for for Nuzhat (It's her birthday — pity we missed being together, but she was with her brother in Islamabad, so it must have gone well). It looks amazing - and was bought at MoMA! (Yes, yes. I promise. Museum pix coming soon!)
Üff. I wish we could have stuff like this in Karachi. Sometimes. But ... damn! The good old days of Jazz, musical celebrities, the USIS and the Brit Council, movie award winners, exhibitions and plays are over now.
