The_Power_Broker_book_cover

Wanted: Busy Librarian/baby caretaker who doesn’t have time to take on 1,300 page books seeks someone to read Robert Caro’s The Power Broker aloud each evening while he, the Librarian, changes diapers, cleans bottles, and shuffles around the house in a sleep-deprived stupor.  Applicant should have just a totally dulcet voice, as well as the ability to do spot-on Robert Moses, Al Smith, Jimmy Walker, etc. impersonations as required by the text.  Availability during 2 a.m. baby soothing sessions is a must.

While this is an unpaid position, you will have the opportunity to read Robert Caro’s The Power Broker, which I understand is an excellent book.

  1. This post rings true. That book haunts me from the shelf on which it perches. The way I see it, I now have 11 months to read the blasted thing. Oh, and the four or five Lyndon Johnson books.

  2. Ugh. I forgot about the Johnson bios. Well, I guess we’d better get on it.
