I am currently "rediscovering" M.R. James. He is truly one of the finest writers of the macabre.

I took a break from Tolstoy's lenghty novel and read both Journey's End [Sherriff's masterful play about WW1] and Anne Frank - Diary of a Young Girl. Loved them both.

The Davinci Code by Brown - Makes some good points and yet gets a little pulpy at times, but still fun. Lacks some of the wit and research of say Possession by Byatt.

Good stuff, G.A. I think you'll like it.

mfritschel, I'm going to read Da Vinci Code soon, I hope. I'm interested, and one of my students loaned me her copy, so now I just need to find the time.

M.R. James is widely considered one of the finest writers of English ghost stories, and I'm inclined to agree with the assessment. His bogies aren't stately puffs of smoke, but rather nasty, malevolent buggers, not unlike, say, Sadako. His story "The Casting of the Runes" was the basis for Jacques Tourneur's Curse of the Demon. You can find some of his work on line here.

I'm currently reading A Doll's House by Ibsen for a class I'm in, and for enjoyment reading: Heaven on Earth: The Rise and Fall of Socialism, by Joshua Muravchik, which is surprisingly entertaining and illuminating. (Did you know that basically everything that's known as Marxism was conceived and written by Frederich Engels, and that Marx, while an intelligent thinker and brilliant soapbox orator, basically lived off of the success and money of Engels his entire life?)

Heh heh. I'm not actually a rabid anti-socialist, but that was just too perfect an opportunity to pass up.
