Current reading: The Flatiron: The New York Landmark and the Incomparable City That Arose with It, by Alice Sparberg Alexiou. About a building at which an extremely important moment of my life occurred. Very interesting so far.
Next up: Washington: A Life, by Ron Chernow, whose histories of Hamilton and the House of Morgan are great.
Skimming but finding much good material: Daniel Patrick Moynihan: A Portrait in Letters of an American Visionary.
