Coming Soon

The Yiddish Policeman's Union writeup is going to be a bit longer than I expected, and so is my workweek, so no dice for tonight. Instead I'll mention that I've started Aristotle's Ethics both for a book club and to hopefully generate some material here. C.S. Lewis offered a lot of food for thought, and I can approach a work of philosophy from a lot more angles than fiction.

Further down the pike I plan to get ahold of a copy of George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London, after two people, independently of one another, suggested I read it. Reading Orwell's takedown of Tolstoy's attack on Shakespeare and King Lear is a good way to whet one's appetite.
