Mark-Jason Dominus talked about Lisp a bit during, I think, a discussion
on higher-order Perl.  You might check out his book "Higher-Order Perl",
<>, (the full-text search option reveals a bit
about what he said, if you search for Lisp).  He went on a bit about how
Perl is closer to Lisp than C, in his estimation, and he mentioned a Lisp
book that you might fancy.  I don't have the title handy.  Pipe up, and
I'll see if I can find the title when I'm at home.
