Outline by Rachel Cusk
"I enjoyed this book a lot as I was reading it - but I honestly can't remember precisely what I liked or, really, much of what I read. I know I liked the writing; there's an elegance to it and to the slow, careful unlayering of the characters' thou..." Read more of this review »

Leonard Woolf
“Anyone can be a barbarian; it requires a terrible effort to remain a civilized man.”
Leonard Woolf

Ruth Ozeki
“Coming at us like this--in waves, massed and unbreachable--knowledge becomes symbolic of our disempowerment--becomes bad knowledge--so we deny it, riding its crest until it subsides from consciousness... "Ignorance." In this root sense, ignorance is an act of will, a choice that one makes over and over again, especially when information overwhelms and knowledge has become synonymous with impotence... If we can't act on knowledge, then we can't survive without ignorance... Ignorance becomes empowering because it enables people to live. Stupidity becomes proactive, a political statement.”
Ruth Ozeki, My Year of Meats

“Just because X doesn't necessarily mean Y.”
A. Cretan

Michael N. Forster
“To put the point facetiously, one could say that Hegel began his career a Marxist and later became a Hegelian.”
Michael N. Forster, Hegel's Idea of a Phenomenology of Spirit

I puzzled over whether you were asking about your favorite authors, or mine. I plumped for mine, against the plain sense of the question, on the grounds that I couldn't possibly be expected to know yours!


Scribble Orca Actually, neither, but that's neither here nor there :D. Thank you for the friending, Simon.

Simon You're very welcome. Glad they arrived safely, and hope you enjoy them. I look forward to any reviews of them you might write.


Maureen i got them today! hurray, hurray! THANK YOU SO MUCH. :) i am now going to post a status update where i publicly thank you. :)


message 3: by Simon

Simon I sent the books in two packages, so perhaps both of those slips will lead you to more Cabell!


Maureen hello simon! i got two package slips in the mail today and i'm guessing one of them means that i am about to receive the bounty of acidic 70s paperbacks! SO EXCITED! and what marvellous timing too-- just as i almost ready to take the silver stallion out of my purse! :)

will be back to confirm when they are in my grubby little paws but here's an advanced thanks! and hurray! :)

Kris Thanks so much for the friend request, Simon! I agree -- being friends is both simpler and more satisfying than simply following. :)
