My lucky draw in the Penguin classics sweepstakes
Posted August 21, 2007on:
Jacques the Fatalist by Denis Diderot. Whoopee! First of all it’s French, so what’s not to like? Second of all, yesterday I was showered with nine Penguin classics from a recent arts graduate, one of which was Rameau’s Nephew & d’Alembert’s Dream by the same author.
If you didn’t know by now the review blog is up. Here are the books I found intriguing: Dead Souls by Gogol (ever since the Kafka Nabokov essay his name pops up everywhere), Plays Political by George B. Shaw and Vita Nuovo by Dante Alighieri.
