(The Return of) What book are you reading at this time?
Have been reading:
All of "The land of green plums" by Hertha Muller. It's about her treatment by the Ceaucescu regime in Romania, and it's very well written - a sort of spare, lean style.
Most of "Americana" by Don de Lillo - one of the really brilliant American writers. Narrator gets a little tiresome at times though.
And a fair bit of "The History Man" by Malcom Bradbury - iconic book, but of its time and the protagonists make you want to eat your own fist.
