“A Language Older than Words,’ by Derrick Jensen. He’s an environmentalist who talks about how we forget the language of the world and clutter it with our own verbal language. He says we need to take a step back and listen to the language of the world.”

“I am reading ‘Zombie Curse,’ by Arthur M., M.D. Fournier and Daniel Herlihy. It’s about the HIV and AIDS epidemic in Haiti and about the author setting up a clinic there. It’s an awesome book.”

Tender is the Night,’ by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It’s about American expatriates in France. It’s his best book. It’s better than ‘Gatsby.’”

A Bed of Red Flowers by Nelofer Pazira. A couple of years ago I saw the film Kandahar that was made by an Iranian director and starred Miss Pazira. She is not really an actress. She is a journalist living in Montreal, Quebec. Originally from Afghanistan this book tells of her growing years in Afghanistan and how her family escaped to Canada. She also tells us about the making of the film. A very good book. If you have not see the film, may I recommend it.

missed you last week MSC. hope you were okay.
still on the same book, haven't had so much book reading time lately. "schlock holmes" by Fish. some of the stories in it are starting to get a little repetitive.
