Reading lately:

Reread "Color of Magic" and "Equal Rites" and newly read "Sourcery", Terry Pratchett. Standard airplane 'oh shit I have almost run out of books let's see what I tossed into my suitcase at the last minute' reading.

"Fun Home", Alison Bechdel. Extremely good autobiographic comic. It makes me want to read Camus's "Myth of Sisyphus".

"La Joueuse de Go", Shan Sa, which I have just started but already like a lot. Set in 1930s Manchuria, the narration's elliptic brevity seems light more than blunt - not unlike the way a series of stones sketches out territory.
