I’ve not read many books; I have watched a lot of films. Perhaps there’s a connection there. Books are likely to pick up a bit after May, when I don’t expect to read many either.
A few names:
- Dacia Maraini, an Italian writer – I found this one rather dull. This was a break in my TBR reading, I’d only just bought it and there were another 5 or so books by her for sale, so I thought I try it before buying the others. Needless to say, I didn’t buy the others.
- Endre Ady is the greatest Hungarian poet of the c20th. He also wrote some short stories.
- The others I’ve mostly mentioned before. I’m sure I was going to post something on Henry Green, what with everyone else doing so, but never got around to it.
I have done quite a bit of reading, I guess – just not that last bit of effort to finish things. Auto da Fé is very close (three-quarters complete), which seems a major achievement; but I got distracted in the last week or so and started a whole lot of new stuff instead.
51 films by the end of April is pretty good. We might make 150 for the year.
