    Don DeLillo - Underworld.

    Damn but this man can write. Sometimes I don't really feel like we're on the same wavelength as far has his narrative choices and characters go, but there are some books that are just excellently written and this is one of them. I think I like the first half of Great Jones Street even more than this but that book is a shambles in its latter half.

    A colleague made me read that once and I wasn't expecting much but then actually really liked it.

    So I just finished the Confederacy fo Dunces by John Kennedy Toole.

    And it's one of the funniest, best written book I've ever read.

    I tried to read it about 10 years ago and couldn't read through the 10th page. Clearly, I wasn't smart enough to understand the intelligence and modernity of Ignatius Reilly's point of view.

    Seriously, it's an excellent book and you will have a great time reading it.

    A Dance with Dragons is reminding me how enjoyable reading can be.

    I am reading The Road to Wigan Pier by George Orwell.

    It is a fascinating account of poverty and industrialization - for me, no one else has ever really written being poor and miserable like George Orwell. Down and Out in Paris and London is another classic of his.

    Good timing! I’m reading a ton of stuff at the moment. I finished Manning Marable’s “Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention” just days before he died.
