  • I just finished reading 真珠婦人(shinjyu-fujin = pearl lady) by 菊池寛(Kikuchi Kan), a classic, Japanese version of Carmen. And I 'm finally reading Fracoise Sagan's "Bonjour Tristesse" (悲しみよこんにちは)in English copy.

    • a good read

      Here's a good one. Not too tough but you might have to pull the dictionary out here and there. Great, lovely funny/tragic stories about death personified, coming down to earth to do his job.

        • actually, it is, B1. It's kind of a light treatment of a heavy topic. I pushed noodles out my nose laughing while parked in my car, eating lunch, reading this one.

          serious, give it a try.

              Here's an offer Buffoon. It involves no questions or riddles and only about a moderate intellect, so you're nearly qualified!

              I've got a 5000yen bill for you if you'll just stop posting on this thread.

              Now that's really money for nothing!

                        • Yesterday I turned the last page of Fitzie's "Tender is the Night" just as I reached my station (calculated speedreading rather than a pleasant coincidence; although I recant my earlier disavowal of books, I savor much more the erotic climb of women on escalators...) and nearly fell out the doors in empathetic pain for the protagonist's dissolute end...Oh ____, why did you let the women and the drink debase you? It doesn't have to be that way...or so I consoled myself on the walk home.

                          Anyways it's an exhausting and melancholy read if you're a borderline alcoholic living with an insane woman as so many of us are but Fitzie makes depression very compelling - he makes it beautiful. Recommended!

                          Today I started "Sputnik Sweetheart" by Murakami which for me marks a return to a subject that is close to my heart - lesbians who turn to c*ck when they drink and then forget everything in the morning...OK, I made that up. But it is a story about lesbians so I'm really jazzed.

                              I've just started reading 'Russka' by Edward Rutherfurd. Have decided I'm going to read all his historical epics.
