reading william barrett's irrational man. just started, but it seems to be an excellent overview of existentialism.
was reading Lautremont's (sp?) Maldoror over the weekend, but i unfortunately left it in a gynocology office in detroit while waiting for my girlfriend to be prodded and such by scary men in lab coats. only got about half way through it. very violent stuff. i'm hoping a nervous mother-to-be picked it up off the end table where it lay, skimmed through it, and was horrified and baffled as to why the doctor would put such a thing in a waiting room. that thought is worth the money i'm going to owe the library.
