Re: What are you reading now?
I finished Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian". All told, I can't say I was overly impressed. He's obviously an incredibly gifted writer, but dystopia and gore have their limits. I'd be interested in hearing recommendations on another McCarthy book, perhaps something in a more modern setting (and neither of the novels adapted to film).
I'm about 25 pages into Maugham's "The Razor's Edge". I read a profile of Maugham a while back and found myself immediately intrigued. When I get the time, I'm really excited to read "Of Human Bondage".
