Recent Reading

Been busy with school but have been reading and writing quite a bit. Refuge.

Recent reading: Nabokov, Coetzee, Coetzee, Nabokov, David Ferry (reread), Thomas Bernhard. Got Melville on the back burner, or I may reach for another Bernhard (we'll see).

From Bernhard's The Lime Works:

Even though it was still referred to as the lime works, when it came up, it would after all be truer to speak of a shut-down or deactivated lime works, when referring to the lime works. People are always referring to all kinds of structures or mental complexes, Konrad is supposed to have said, that have long ceased to be the same structures or mental complexes they once were.
