What I read over Shabbat

Got Sondheim's "Finishing the Hat" out of the library. Although it's dauntingly large, most of it is lyrics --- which are great for reference but for the most part can be skimmed in order to get to the Good Parts. And the Good Parts are very good indeed; there were quite a few great laughs, and an understanding of how Sondheim writes and, more importantly, how he hears.
