Good airplane reads of yore:
- Super-Cannes, J.G. Ballard
- Absorbing, scary, creepy as hell.
- Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, John Le Carré
- In 200 years it'll be Coetzee who? De Lillo what? Did they ever hang with JLC?
- Durga Puja, ed. Swami Satyananda Saraswati
- I was trying to read this in Sanskrit and it was like closing my eyes and imagining I was assembling an ocean liner piece by piece.
- Drawing Blood, Poppy Z. Brite
- I not only forgot I was on a plane, I forgot who I was or that I was. Exquisite Corpse gave me another great Brite flight; that time we had delays from hell and I was glad--if the plane took off and I got where I was going, I'd have to stop reading the book!
I'll be back in a few days and will try to get this unicycle on track again...
