Been Reading Mona Simpson's Book, 'A Regular Guy'

Or should I say trying to read it. I find her writing style to be flat.

But I bought the damned thing so I need to read it. Read most of her other stuff, likely because of her famous brother, Steve Jobs. Likely this will be the last of her books I read.

It is supposed to be about Steve, although twisted somewhat like writers do. The main character is industrialist, Tom Owens. He is definitely Jobs-ian in manner, and comportment.

I'm less than halfway through the thing and it's a fight to let it keep my attention. Since it is on my kindle I'll keep trying for a while. But it is definitely a dry read. So far.
