I'm eager to read "Private Lives of the Impressionists" -- it should be like time travel to a fascintating and thoroughly energized era. These were artists who helped us see the world in a new way.

For those who enjoy art-related books full of fabulous stories and provocative ideas, I recommend Michael Kimmelman's "The Accidental Masterpiece," which is out in paperback. It's a collection of about 10 essays, most of which I found captivating.

When is Kepler's putting the King Kong poster back up over the register? I will return when it returns. Cordially,

Oh B. William, I wonder who you B, but most of all, I wonder about that King Kong poster. How did I miss it? And what's the story behind the story here? Why did it strike your fancy so? And how long ago was it over the register? I've been a regular at Kepler's for a long time, but I simply don't remember encountering The Big Guy over the register. Could you explain?
