A Good Book

I'm about to go on holiday, so here's a quick, poe-faced post about holiday reading.

Last time I was away I read Cosmos and Pornographia by Witold Gombrowicz. What can I say about them/him? Well, when I grow up I want to be as good as Gombrowicz. Not many writers make me go all serious and wanky, but Gombrowicz is one of 'em. This is serious, startling literature. Not heavyweight and hard-going, but intellectually rigorous and sooooooo rewarding as a result.

Go and read proper books you plebs. Be challenged and changed and edified. As a certain ad campaign recently "Come back interesting."

So read Gombrowicz. Now please.
