Rigel was kind enough to send me...

The Bughouse by Daniel Swift.

A biography of Ezra Pound focusing on the poets Incarceration in a psychiatric hospital for over a decade after the Second World War.

It has been a fascinating read to this point.

Thank you Rigel!

The Book of Lost Friends. Historical fiction.

Recently read: The Arawn Cycle (a re-read) and the Galand Cycle...a long series that keeps getting more interesting.

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (yay! A James Joyce book I could finish!)

Also started A Woman of No Importance, a biography of a one-legged American female spy during WW2. Fascinating!

I'm back into fantasy again after a few years break. I'm a couple of books into Donaldson's last Chronicles and four books into the best books I've read in years, the Sword of Shadows series by J V Jones. The Conan Chronicles have also been in there, but beyond fantasy I'm mainly into history. I've read a few histories of WW2 and Churchill biographies, but it's mainly been fantasy stuff. It suits my need to remove myself from the current events of the world (alongside gaming, which is pretty absorbing as well when you get into it).

Point of order: ( Wink )

This thread is intended for non-sci-fi / fantasy reading matter. Very Happy The one in the sci-fi forum is the one for that sort of thing. Very Happy

(It really doesn't matter, just amuses me. Very Happy )

Hmmm........

Are you sure Av? I took it as "What are you reading in general?"

Confused

But nevertheless I take the point and prostrating my miserable self before the bench, plead for the mercy of the Court. But as the late great Frankie Howard would have said, "I always was a miserable pleader."

LOL

Yes, "in general" as opposed to "in the sci-fi / fantasy genre." Wink

Like I said, not serious. Just always strikes me. Very Happy

Schindler's Ark by Thomas Keneally. Third time I've read it and as always I'm deeply moved by the courage and simple humanity shown by those few who were capable of thinking in a direction opposite to that which state propoganda was pushing them. We all know the tragic results of that awful time when madness became for a decade or so sanity, and the few sane individuals who saw it were labeled as mad. We all like to believe that we would have been Schindlers; history shows that in truth very few of us would have been capable of it.
