I've heard only good things - think that's the gf's favourite book/author - should rent from the library.

I'm looking for amazing short stories to edit into dramatic monologues. Anyone have any ideas?

I'm thinking of something psychological and unexpected, along the lines of Roberto Bolaño, but nothing immediately jumps out...

For short stories I love Maugham. Rain is probably the most famous but it's worth buying one of the collections that's out there.

Thanks! I've read a few of his but was't aware of that one...

It looks like a big challenge, but I think I'll try it out.

Random quote from the first page of this thread. This is actually one of the first academic texts I've ever read, was as a first semester freshman, dug it up again recently after having been assigned stuff on linguistics. Still very interesting, and I remember reading that Foucault was paid in hashish for his TV appearance. I haven't re-watched the interview but I remember the impression was that Foucault most likely knew nothing of generative grammar but kept pressing Chomsky to sketch out a view on human nature, which is actually unfair since Chomsky's ethics of human creativity at the time was much more justified on empirical work than the shit Foucault was used to dispelling. Then I read some random biography on Foucault where it said he re-wrote most of History of Human Sexuality after tripping on LSD with a random couple he met at a conference. Pretty much stopped paying attention after that.
