    :D

    Where is Still, by the way, I thought she might've joined our party... and given Halo back her signature.

    Ah, I didn't say he wouldn't do! But okay, you have him Pontalba. I'm getting ready for our next victim. ;)

    How old is SK, by the way?

    It's um... true though! :D

    I love yours too! I think I mentioned that in the Lolita thread, but just in case... :)

    Without going back and looking, if I remember correctly about early 30's.
    I am due for a reread. But I have 3 other books I'm reading at present. ;)

    One of which is one my book fairy gave me--Autobiography of a Geisha by Sayo Masuda and translated by G.G. Rowley.
    I can't say enough good things about this book. Really.

    The usual couple from Borders:

    The New York Trilogy - Paul Auster ; at last,

    Weimar Culture - the Outsider as Insider - Peter Gay; looks authentic.

    Do you know if this Peter Gay is the same one who was killed in the plane crash in PA on 9/11?

    I know it wasn't directed at me, but I don't think it is the same person. Wikipedia doesn't have a date of death for the writer and when I searched for the other person it said he was in his 50's, and the writer would be older.

    Hope that helps. :)

    Oh well he might have to do then. ;)

    That sounds familiar. :D

    I can say enough good things about this book fairy of yours. Want to send her over this way? ;)

    ABC,
    Apparently not. My google shows a Peter Gay of Raytheon Operations in Massachusetts who died in the crash.

    Here is the author of Weimar Culture from the Web:
    Peter Gay

    which BTW looks like an interesting data base.
