Re: What are you reading now?
Just finishing up Orwell's "Down and Out in Paris and London". Good book, but reads like a first book (which it is). I've resolved that I like Orwell much more as an essayist than as a producer of capital-L Literature. Kinda disappointing as I really love his ideas and aphorisms, but his fiction, I'm looking at you "Animal Farm," often feels heavy-handed and a bit uninspired.
Next up some Kafka.
