Experiencing Architecture. Good for anyone with zero background education on the subject. Helpful illustrations.

I'm (re)reading Patricia Highsmith's Ripley novels. Even after all the films that have been made of her work, I still think she's underrated.

I've been working my way (backwards chronologically) through Gunnar Staalesen's 'Varg Veum' series of detective novels set in and around Bergen, Norway. He's been writing them since the 1970s, but they've only just started to be translated in the past couple of years. The recent ones are excellent and highly recommended, but the first couple are very self-consciously imitative of, almost parodying, hard-boiled US detective fiction. There have been films made of most of the books in recent years too, but they are terrible action thrillers that remove all the character development and nuance in favour of violence in scenic Norway.

The Hunger Games, Susan Collins. A trilogy about how television affects society. A very up-to-date policy line and the attitude of the state to who is different in opinion. In general, modern (oxymoron, haha) communism in unusual circumstances.

Fragmented vacation reading. Bits of Robert Musil’s diaries (really, really good!) and individual sentences by Don DeLillo.

(DeLillo is hard for me to read now because his sentences are not only perfect, but discoverable; the mechanics are so easy to discern and replicate, I get caught up in note-taking).
