Roots, Niger Delta, Botany of Desire, and Blood Canticle

I spent New Year’s Eve watching the entire “Roots” television series, a production inspired by Alex Haley’s book. Apparently, there is a sort of sequel called “Queen.”

I finished my reading and notes on The Trading States of the Oil Rivers; a Study of Political Development in Eastern Nigeria.

I’m still reading Michael Pollan’s Botany of Desire and listening to the audio book of Anne Rice’s Blood Canticle, read delightfully by David Pittu.
