About my libraryIt is shrinking to essentials and great unreads. Nostromo perhaps tops the list, though Bleak House will be next. Will keep all of Antunes, Cendrars, Onetti.
Last Nobel Prize winner to really please me: Jelinek.
Still slowly reading Magic Prague.

My daughter, younger, likes short bits of Kafka.
