Current reading

I'll give you a clue: it's not Jane Austen.

  1. It's not "Body and Mind: A Life Illuminated(To Serve is to Obey)" by Arnold Schwarzenegger, is it?

  2. Wells and Fortune's "A Melon for Ecstasy"? If it isn't, you should. Superb book.

  3. Andrew, that's uncanny. You're spot on in terms of (original) nationality.

  4. Must be Bernhard. I'm guessing Extinction. Is it still in print ?

  5. No, it can't be Bernhard because the mother is dead in the first paragraph! It was published 130 years before Extinction and is also out of print in translation.

  7. I admire your restraint, Steve. I'm afraid my mental store of Austrian writers from the mid-19th century isn't over-populated.
