Who Is Mark Twain?

Required reading. Hard to believe we had to wait 100 years for this, it's all quite true even to today. AND SO FUNNY!!!

If [italics]I[end/italics] were a writer, I wouldn't hold back saying what needs to be said.

And I retract a comment of, "Straight boys just aren't very good in the wit department", which I made to a certain individual in the past. I stand corrected with @ pg. 145, now THAT'S golden shit talk.

I'm deep into Roberto Bolano's work and would highly recommend it to those of you who lean a bit closer to the academic side of contemporary lit. I know 2666 is enormous and I'm sure you've heard the buzz about it... in my opinion it is really worth it. Kind of life-changing. Take it slow an you'll be rewarded.

Also, I've started a book-collecting blog, thought I'd plug it here:

take a look and let me know what you think.

Reading The Storm: The World Economic Crisis and What it Means by Vince Cable.

Cable is the only UK politician that has spoken any sense at all about the current crunch. This is a really good book to get to grips with the causes of the crisis and what the effect is globally.

Hopefully a certain boy is reading this and will study a few courses on Economics. He's not very bright in the $$$ department of life, but most boys aren't. bitch!

Still reading the E. Sawtelle book & however good it is it's not really a riveting page turner, then again most great novels aren't. I'll be starting "The Savage Detectives" tomorrow.

Just finished The Damned United, which I enjoyed.
I'll rent the film now, just to compare.

Now halfway through Paul Auster's Man In The Dark, which is great so far.
After that I'll go back to his Brooklyn Folllies, which I had started then promptly forgot about.

In way of recommendation check out his Moon Palace, I won't tell you anything about, but I loved it.
