(no subject)

Just finished reading Nabakov's "The Real Life of Sebastian Knight", which was enjoyable and also somewhat forgettable.

I've now got 7 books to choose from, the result of a productive holiday season:

1.  Bob Woodward, "State of Denial: Bush at War III"
2.  Jean Paul Sartre, "The Age of Reason"
3.  Diane Setterfield, "The Thirteenth Tale"
4.  Kelly Link, "Magic For Beginners"
5.  Haruki Murakami, "Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman"
6.  Mark Danielewski, "Only Revolutions"
7.  Margaret Atwood, "Oryx & Crake"

Not to mention the Fable graphic novels that Kath has been obsessing over for the last month or so.
I'm halfway through a book about shaving for guys 'Sharp Practice' by Anders Larsen. It's really good.

Also just picked up 'How Proust can Change your Life' Alain De Botton which is nearly unputdownable - I like this guy's style.
I hear the new Norman Mailer book about Hitler is brilliant...
Only Revolutions is in my reading pile, too. (Thankfully, all my books survived the theft, not that that's surprising...)

It's a collection of short stories; I read 2 or 3 of them, but then the Pynchon book came out and I put it on the shelf.

I vote for the Satre. But I'm biased. - Ally
