    LIFE OF PI might well be my favorite book of all time but I have never read another by its author Yann Martell. I found a copy of his novel BEATRICE AND VIRGIL in a used book store, and have been trying to get through it for weeks even though it is only slightly over 200 pages. I have been reading other things as well (THE PORTABLE VEBLEN mostly) but I just never look forward to picking up BEATRICE and only read a few pages at a time. PI was such a lovely but also rollicking, lively and fun read while BEATRICE is just pretentious, navel gazing drivel. I am only going to finish it, eventually, because it is too short to not conquer even though this little book may be my Everest.

    Author Sue Grafton, creator of the iconic Kinsey Millhone detective series, has passed away from cancer at age 77. Her essential alphabet series will end with Y Is for Yesterday, which was published in August. A tremendous loss for mystery fiction fans everywhere.

    1: a Fantasy/Sci Fi novel

    For that one I would totally reccomend Hunters by Whitley Strieber

    The Satyricon  written by Petronius (Titus Petronius Arbiter) during the reign of Nero (54-68 AD), translated by J.P. Sullivan.

    See Fellini Satyricon, or simply Satyricon,  a 1969 Italian fantasy drama film written and directed by Federico Fellini and loosely based on Petronius’s work Satyricon, written during the reign of the emperor Nero and set in imperial Rome.

    This is an amazing look into a culture 2000 years ago,  up-lifting, illuminating and captivating. It is hard not to be impressed with the progressive outlook many Romans had regarding sex. It was a view that would change drastically as the Empire embraced Christianity.
