People with more interesting lives…

I love biographies, and plenty of people have much more interesting lives than me, so there’s lots of possibilities to choose from.  I often feel I should be reading one of David McCullough’s excellent works, but tend to drift over to something less daunting. Especially in the summer…

Rossi’s memoir is really unusual; a Little Person who ran with the Bloods, who spent 10 years in CA’s Folsom prison for attempted murder, and who eventually went into the entertainment business, and Pit Bull rescue.  Truth is stranger than fiction here…

Gregg Allman’s book is more typical rock-star stuff, (music, women, drugs, more women, repeat ), but since he’s been around for a long time, he’s had some time to reflect.   My husband loved the music history, but even if you aren’t a fan, the life history is captivating.

Gregg and  Shorty take what life has given them, and  accept responsibility for decisions and their consequences.  Both have a weird, unintentional humor to them, which is a big plus.  And both of these 2 bio’s seem kind of rough at first,  but end up giving you a lot to think about– socially, philosophically, and even spiritually.

I’ll be getting to those McCullough books very soon…
