New additions to the bookcase that may be of interest to you:
- White Noise – Don DeLillo
- Selected Short Stories – Balzac
- Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead – Tom Stoppard
- Starship Troopers – Robert A. Heinlein (far more thought provoking than the film)
- Catch 22 – Joseph Heller
- Orientalism – Edward Said
- Reflections on the Revolution in France – Edmund Burke
- The Poverty of Historicism – Karl Popper
- Can the subaltern speak? – Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak
Special mention to Perry Anderson’s three–part series on Europe in the LRB. The series clocks in at 45,000 words, and I’m only a third the way through. Recommended, if only for his erudition.
Now if only books could be read as fast as they could be bought.
