hey. i saw in the connection news that you added a Dubravka Ugresic book. she recently gave a public talk at the university of rochester, as well as for a class i am taking in translational studies. though i haven't read her new book "nobody's home" it sounds quite interesting. let me know about the "ministry of pain".

Yo! It's Jake. Here is one of my favorite quotes from one of our shared books:

"Ahee ah ee ahee ah ee ee ee ee oh eeah"
Nice library; cool blog.
Parker Tyler Memorial Library? I'd like to join such a fine institution, but am uncertain whether it exists.
I just entered 200 books!
Love your book collection, especially the film books. Is there a specific book on African cinema that you recommend?
