One of my favorite books...

This Robert Irwin serves as an excuse for me to mention one of my favorite books, Lawrence Weschler's biography of Irwin, Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees. Weschler decides to follow Irwin, "who one day got hooked on his own curiosity and decided to live it." I hope at some point I can write something even half as enlightening about an artist as this book.
