Three Books of Shame

Fri Mar 25, 2005

Here’s the game we’re playing.

  • Lem’s Summa Technologiae. Ok, it’s never been published in English; but I could work my way through the German or finally learn Polish. What better place to start?

  • Waugh’s biography Edmund Campion. To quote Carl, “classic. Total classic.”

  • Le Carre’s The Naive and Sentimental Lover. I once claimed to have read this, falsely. It, along with the most recent book, is the only Le Carre I haven’t read, though I do own it.
