Impressions and Expressions of Ijon - Wood on Auster
Wood on Auster|
A biting piece by James Wood on Paul Auster's latest novel, and those preceding it, in the New Yorker. I now feel a lot better about not having read a single one yet, though it sometimes seemed everyone around me was reading or has read one.
If you've read any Auster, tell me what you think of his stuff; if you read this piece by Wood as well, do tell me what you think about that, too. Enquiring minds want to know!

I suppose sometimes he gets too clever for his own good, but some of his writing is excellent. The first chapter of The Music of Chance was breathtaking, I thought when I read it.
מאוד אהבתי את ארמון הירח. זה היה סיפור חניכה עבורי כשקראתי אותו בהודו. הזכיר לי חלקים רבים מהתבגרותי
אבל אין ספק שהטענה שהוא חוזר על עצמו נכונה

Do you still conduct Latin classes? If yes, what do you read there? I'd like to join.

I do. Every other week, on Wednesdays at 20:00, in Azor. Next meeting is this coming Wednesday. We are currently reading the Loci Immutati from Wheelock's Latin 6th Edition, as well as Winnie-Ille-Pu.
You're very welcome to join. Give me a call at 052-3593996 on Wednesday (I'm out of the country until then) for the details.
