it was amazing

If you know Hofstadter only from Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, this is an amazing continuation. It is far more personal, a tribute to the love of his life. It is also an absolute joy for an amateur (or professional?) linguist.

Charles Thanks for the recommendation. I have that book (acquired for a few dollars when I used to work at Time Life books). I have a more recent Hofstadter book (I am a Strange Loop) but I am encouraged to read this book now.
