I spent Thanksgiving in the town of Marfa, Texas. If you aren’t familiar, I won’t judge (but you should look it up!). It’s a town of only 2000 people, a three hour drive from the closest airport. However, it’s a great town in so many ways. The town was predominately known for its fort during WW2, but it was reborn in the 70s by the artist Donald Judd. Due to this artistic influence, the town developed into a really great quirky place. One of the places in the town was the Marfa Book Company, a great little independent book store that also sold pottery and art. I had to support the place so I ended up buying two unusual books–The Private Life of Trees and Autobiography of a Corpse. I can’t wait to read them both.
