35919 Good book, but his most powerful, I think, is Jude the Obscure.

35919 Now reading The Sportswriter by Richard Ford. Engaging, challenging. About half way through.

35919 Hello, fellow readers,

I'm a reader and writer -- my last book was CABIN, published by Penguin books. Some of you have reviewed it -- thanks. If I'm working on a book, my reading is focused on the topics. If not, I'm inclined toward nature and history.

35919 Not long after I read "Cuckoo's Nest," I read another Kesey book, "Sometimes a Great Notion." At the time, of course, Kesey had a reputation as a Merry Prankster -- and everything he wrote got filtered (rightly or wrongly) through the lens of his rebellion against the conventions of the time. Then he did a piece for Esquire magazine, maybe in the early 70s, that set a different mood -- it was piece, as I recall distantly, about his marriage and life on the farm. He was older than I, but for many of us, he was a kind of forward-traveling shooting star.

35919 I love printed books too but I just returned from a trip to Europe during which time my Kindle died. Tragedy! I was reduced to reading airline magazines and newspapers in other languages. You can't beat the eBook if you're a traveler. No weight, lots of choices.

35919 I remember reading "Cuckoo's Nest" when it first came out. The times offered a context for grasping the meanings of the book, I think. Control, conformity, questions about who was truly crazy.
