Laughing Gas by P.G. Wodehouse: "My mother would read to my grandfather all the P.G. Wodehouse books. They’re really English, and it’s a very English humor that’s quite old and I really love it. There’s one in particular, Laughing Gas. They make me laugh, but at the same time, it reminds me of the way my mother would laugh aloud with her father. He was always sick, so he was always lying down or resting. This was in the ’80s. He died in ’91, so up until then, I could hear her read those."…

Darkness Moves by Henri Michaux: "He’s wonderful. I think he wrote under drugs at the time, I think it was in the ’60s. He had many experiences and it’s a very wild way of writing. It’s his imaginary. It’s like hallucinations. It can be funny, but at the same time very poetic. There’s such a freedom in the writing. I read him when I was very very young, so it was such a discovery. That I’ll go back to and read again. It’s just a beautiful and free way of going deep into imagination. That’s…

Journey to the End of the Night by Céline: "This is another also that I was starting and couldn’t get into for years and years, and it was my father’s best author. I was really willing to read it, and it was Céline. I read it for the first time maybe five years ago, and it’s maybe the most powerful book I’ve ever read. It’s called Voyage au bout de la nuit. I started that maybe 20 years ago but would never go past page 50. Suddenly, five years ago, I was really into it and Mort à crédit…

"At the moment, I’m reading a book that’s quite wonderful. In French, it’s called Une femme fuyant l’annonce. It’s about a woman escaping… A woman who’s in Israel and she leaves her house before anyone can tell her that her son in the army is dead." Charlotte Gainsbourg

I'm fair at best when it comes to grammar and punctuation, but this book just cracks me up and forces me to look a bit closer at my own use of the English language. (but as always I have to remember that there really isn't a right or wrong in a language that is a mixture of everything under the sun)

Very true. Although this is why Kindle was invented - to allow more book space without actual books! Still - I like to hold and smell books too!

...for when the environment directs the psyche. With this book, I not only discovered my favourite author but also understood how to tell a good love story from a very deliberate, pushy one.

Anything by P.G. Wodehouse is so great! Anytime I am down I can just read a chapter of his stuff and laugh.
