'07 reading continues with Bowerman, Gaiman

On the fourth day of January, 2007, I am continuing to read The New Yorker's winter fiction issue, Kenny Moore's biography on the late Oregon track coach Bill Bowerman and Neil Gaiman's Fragile Things.

Fragile Things is widely uneven, but when Gaiman is on there's nobody better.

The Bowerman book is an absolute joy. Bowerman was a force of nature; he was a superb and inventive coach and a visionary who helped launch Nike.
