Simon and 13 other people liked Samadrita's review of Look Back in Anger:
Look Back in Anger by John Osborne
" Jimmy, I recommend a cold shower and enrolling yourself in Feminism 101. "
"I did say that. But this is more intellectual history and doesn't fall under the categories I don't want to read. "

The Hanged Man by Robert C. Bartlett
" Fascinating microhistory - the story of a man returning to life after being hanged (twice!) is examined as part of a canonization trial. The interplay between the stories of the different witnesses (more than fifteen years later) is really intrigu... " Read more of this review »

Scribble Orca Happy New Year, Simon - all the best for 2014!

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.

message 6: by 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 4: 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! :)


Cheryl Thanks alot for accepting my friend request! Now on to your TBR list and thoughts about books...excuse me please...

message 1: by Kris

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