This is one of those books that inspires you to write a book. A couple of simple ideas, artfully combined, shed light on countless facets of life. Uncovering the history of a parrot, and patrolling the loop of highway around Ft. Worth. Of course there’s more, much more. Like all great books, much more than is written. I wish I could remember why I decided to read this book, because it was a good decision, but then maybe discovering the original reason would take the magic away from it.
