Reading List – 1st Aug
After a month or so without reading very much at all, I’m back into the swing of things, having recently read Mazza’s The Albanian, Hemingway’s Fiesta and McCaffrey’s In Ecstasy. I’ve got a couple of books here in front of me that I mean to read, and a couple more that I intend to acquire in the next few weeks.
A Farewell to Arms – Hemingway – After Fiesta I am neither encouraged nor discouraged to pursue the Hemingway canon. This book will probably decide which way I go.
The Travel Writer – Simone Lazaroo – I’ve been meaning to read this for a few weeks now…
Beijing Coma – Ma Jian – I am REALLY looking forward to this book by my favourite Chinese writer
Ubik: The Screenplay – Philip K. Dick – fans of the great man will be eager to get their hands on this.
The Last Sky – Alice Nelson – set for release on the 7th of August, this is the 2006 TAG Hungerford Award winner.
Revolutionary Road – Richard Yates – this has been recommended by my sister. The late Kurt Vonnegut has some very complimentary things to say about it.
