The Sunday Rundown

I'm still working my way through the beginning of "Anna Karenina" but I'm enjoying it. I think the characters names will shortly become difficult to remember but that was also true of Marquez's "One Hundred Years of Solitude". Unlike Marquez there's no family tree but there is a list of character names.

One thing I don't understand is why some characters seem to be members of royalty. What was the point and wasn't Tolstoy all for the peasants?

I think I'll eventually have to watch the Vivien Leigh movie version. I'm sure the costumes will be great but I'm not sure about the rest of the film.

Witness here the most adorable parallel parking job you will ever see.

This is Edith Piaf's "La Vie en Rose". She first came to my attention because of Marion Cotillard's Oscar win but I'd heard the song many times before. Please to enjoy this blast from the past.
