These days I have windows of books in progress. First there is ‘this side of paradise’, a book I enjoy for its main character Amory and the humorous way Fitzgerald expresses himself. There is ‘portrait of an artist as a young man.’ I like for strangeness of main character’s voice. I just picked up Rilke The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge, which is downright fascinating. It has no plot but the dreamlike quality of the descriptions is very compelling.
