    Finished The Master and Margarita by Bulgakov the other day. My only regret is not having read it sooner. It was great!
    I've now started Lord of the Flies by William Golding

    Read Lord of the Flies last week. I'm not sure how I felt about it. I never got that into it, and I thought the end was a bit sudden. But twas grand.

    I'm now reading The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.

    Maus: A Survivor's Tale. I'm in part one. I like the story, I like the way it was drawn, and I also think that was a brilliant idea to show people as lirerally different species.

    Finished Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar. It was pretty good.

    I'm now reading Ham on Rye by Charles Bukowski. I really like it so far. It's very depressing, but very funny at the same time

    Also reading a number of Medieval texts for college, like Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy. Woo.

    I'm reading If on a winter's night a traveller by Italo Calvino

    Mad shit altogether. But it's good.

    Read a few sections of Insectopedia by Hugh Raffles for a graduate workshop I had this morning. It was a pretty good experience.

    I'm reading the books on Man Booker prize's shortlist. So far I am astonished by how so many poorly written books could be shorlisted for an award once A S. Byatt was given for Possession. I think having a small kid as a pratagonist and trying to make your book sound cute and innocent with it is a terrible trend. And I think if you don't have anything new to say about racisim you should shut up, it only makes the problems seem less important. In conclusion, 2011 is a terrible year for literature except for the translation of 1Q84 by Murakami which I am reading & loving right now.

    And T, more recommendations on science fiction please. I can't get enough of this genre.
