Red Emma has posted his second review in his new column over at the O.C. Weekly.
This week, OC Bookly's bibliofella reviews Chapman professor Tom Zoellner's new book, A Supermarket in Arizona: What the Gabrielle Giffords Shooting Tells us about the Grand Canyon State and Life in America.
The title, of course, tells you what you need to know but Red manages to connect the dots between that tragic day last year and Warren Zevon, the Costa Concordia and Jean Luc Godard and more. Go figure.
One day Red will return to write for us but until then we'll enjoy his rants on all thing literary and orange.
