I visit and re-visit Mark Harris's "Mike Nichols: A Life." It's obviously been thoroughly researched and Harris has always been a smooth and engaging writer (and I love the chapter on the making of Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolff) but for whatever reason I can only digest a modest portion at a time. And then I nod off or get distracted and wander away and forget about Harris-Nichols, and then, a week or a month later, I'll start reading again. And always late at night.
