You didn't know the things in the book because you're a New Yorker! The book points out how YOU GUYS dismiss Chicago as not equal. lol. I'm glad you enjoyed the book. So much in there! I love the parts about the engineering involved in building skyscrapers on sandy soil. Not to mention the Titanic connection!
BTW, I was meaning to remind you of a book I mentioned to you in Toronto: Jeannette Winterspoon's Weight, her short retelling of the Atlas myth.
I hope you hear back about that job soon! Good luck, and congrats on that short job. That's a nice resume piece for sure.

But I wasn't always a New Yorker. And I've spent a lot of time in Chicago and know all sorts of things about it, really.
I need to write down the Winterspoon book. I'm reading The Yiddish Policemen's Union now and really enjoying it. So inventive!
