Juno and the Paycock by SeŠn ” Casey
Another modernist irish play
After finishing "Moby Dick" I'm now reading "The logic of life" by Tim Harford but haven't gotten that far so I'm not sure if it is worth reading yet
Anyone read it?
Still reading A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by Joyce. I haven't much time plus it's not one of those books that are easy to just fly through. I do find myself not knowing what the hell Joyce is on about in parts
Also reading Murphy by Samuel Beckett. He seems to have just wanted to show off with all the fancy unheard of words that he knows. Also a pretty hard book to get through.
And also Paradise Lost by Milton. Also for uni. This is even easier than Beckett's work though.
After I finished reading "The logic of life" (no groundbreaking ideas and to be honest quite boring) I read "Blaze" written by "Richard Bachman" (Stephen King). Compelling
Re-reading Hyperion and Fall of Hyperion by Dan Dimmons. Just as good as I remember except for the very begining, which is a bit weak. On the side, I'm snacking on "Warfare in the Eighteenth Century" by Jeremy Black.

Just finished The Last September by Elizabeth Bowen. Nothing really seemed to happen in it, yet I still quite enjoyed it and found it quite witty. Especially:
"'Patrols' said Lawrence.
Hugo reached out and pressed a hand on to Francie's rug. 'Patrols' he told her, translating the information"
I guess it is interesting in terms of the Anglo-Irish's seeming unawareness and indifference to the civil war.
Just finished Wedding Night by Gary Devon.
First novel I read by him. Love the turn at the end, other than that it's so-so.
