Recalling past lives

Today’s NYT House & Home section opens with a look at current UT co-ops (On Campus, Finding Face Time in a Virtual Age: College Students Rediscover a Model of Living Popular in the 1960s, byline Ginia Bellafante). I’ve heard some very funny stories today so far and the day’s far from over yet. They date from the Split Rail, Armadillo, Rome Inn, granola and munchies era, and I won’t repeat any here. Another look at this era from Austin’s past may be found in Alamo House, by our own Sarah Bird, now garnering rave reviews for her current novel, The Flamenco Academy. Alamo House used to be subtitled “Women Without Men; Men Without Brains,” but that seems to have disappeared when the paperback edition was published. Sarah Bird is scheduled to make an appearance at the Texas Book Festival. I hope to hear a great many more funny stories before this day is over.
