    I'm currently reading Amazon.com: Quietus: Vivian Schilling: Books I'm about half way through it and it's proving to be a good book, easy to read and well written. It is long - almost 600 pages of very small text, and it has a very odd plot. Odd enough that anything I say will come across badly, but I am enjoying it

    Is it good? I just ordered it and another of his and am anxiously awaiting their arrival. I love anything that pisses on suburbia.

    I had to abandon 'A Confederacy of Dunces' for the time being to start on 'The Jungle' by Upton Sinclair for my history course.. a really enjoyable read.

    'The Jungle' by Upton Sinclair
    That's a great book. I've just started reading a book about the rise of the middle classes in England. It's a bit dry so far but I'm going to plug along for a bit.

    I enjoyed the book quite alot. I guess it doesnt matter seeing as it is such a classic. Complex characters, and just good ole writing. I envy writers seeing as I want to be one, bu just can get shit to come out right.

    If you plug away it will come out right at some point. It's all hard work, the writing gig. Hard work and hellish inner pain because you really want to get it right but somehow rarely do. Ok is never good enough, eh?

    david sedaris - when you are engulfed in flames

    i started it on the plane coming to chile, then i misplaced it and thought i'd left it at the hotel. finally found it again and continued where i left off. funny and touching, typical sedaris.

    also reading a book i got as a gift, by a swedish author, selma lagerlöf. called 'the emperor of portugallia'.

    I finished Revolutionary Road a few days back. Now I really want to see the movie.
    Good read.

    Good read.

    My copy arrived this morning, along with 'Eleven Tales of Lonliness' which looks fabulous.

    Not quite finished with 'The Jungle' yet, but my history professor probably didn't anticipate me reading 3/4ths of it a month before the date we are supposed to have it read by.. so I put it down and started reading 'The Brothers Karamazov' by Dostoevsky.. I read 'Crime and Punishment' a few years back and thoroughly enjoyed it.. hope this one is good as well.
