Recent Reads

William Goldman writing under the pseudonym Simon Morgenstern: The Princes Bride.The original book on which the classic cult film with the same title is based on.

Aldous Huxley: Brave New World. A classic written in 1932 and another view on the possible future society. More gentle than 1984 by Georg Orwell, but still frightening.

Again by Simon Morgenstern, that is William Goldman: The Silent Gondoliers.

Peter S. Beagle: A Fine and Private Place. A gentle love story about two ghosts which learn together “the boundaries of life and death, and the extraordinary gifts of love”.

The Seven Days of Peter Crumb. The debut novel of Jonny Glynn. A dark and tense story about the schizophrenic Peter Grumb, writing down in words the last seven days of his life which turn out to leave a random but very bloddy mark on humanity. Definitely worth a read.

    I loved the Princess Bride. Books always beat out movies (maybe it’s just my pregnant imagination giving birth to crazy images no movie producer could come up with).
