PS: While we're on Greene, I picked up his "The Quiet American" today. Hopefully I'll read it before the movie, which I'm very much looking forward to, comes out.

I don't know if I mentioned it here that I read that a couple of weeks ago. It's a quick read, really, and especially I think for those of us born during the Vietnam War, it's very interesting. I liked it on a number of levels, but particularly the historical political context.

Between this and the way Anthony Bourdain talks up Vietnam in A Cook's Tour, I'm really thinking about a trip there.
