March 30, 2016: Reading List Update

  • The Forever War (by Dexter Filkins): Five Stars
  • The Death of Ivan Ilyich: Tolstoy. Self can’t even. He dies at the end. That’s IT ???
  • Heart of Darkness: Marlowe bores. Who would have thought? Skip.
  • Candide (Voltaire): Currently reading. And enjoying.
  • The Merseault Investigation: Coming Up Next.
  • Deep South: Much heavy lifting. But: Paul Theroux. Must read. Seriously.
  • Watch Me (Anjelica Huston Memoir): Self can’t wait.
  • Grey: follow-up to Fifty Shades. E. L. James. Self read the opening chapter last summer. Can’t get it out of her head. Despite the book getting the most stinging reviews ever on Amazon (Read, in particular, the three-star reviews). Self still remembers seeing the gigantic black-and-white posters of Jamie Dornan’s back on buildings in London’s South Bank, last summer. And Jamie Dornan does indeed have a very nice back. No arguments there. Just saying.

Stay tuned.

WIP: “Oceans”

They’d been preparing for this day for centuries. The day when all remaining humankind must live permanently beneath the ocean waves.

Finally, when it became too painful to breathe the air any longer, the last remaining human colonies began to send pioneers into the deep.

* ****

Why oh why. Are all of self’s writings. So apocalyptic.

She’s always had a deep fascination with oceans, however. Always.

Stay tuned.
