The French Lieutenant's Woman

Posted to What Are You Reading?

by John Fowles. There are some novels that you know will stay with you for the rest of your life, and even while reading it I knew this was one. Beautiful storytelling on so many levels. Entrancing. Also reading A Fire in the Mind, the life of Joseph Campbell, a matter-of-fact biography of the influential mythologist who has had a profound effect on my own life. Also reading Krishnamurti's Notebook, another influencing voice. I've been interested in Campbell and Krishnamurti separately for years and, coincidentally, I find out in the Campbell biography that he was good friends with Krishnamurti when they were both young and who fanned his desire to learn more about eastern wisdom.
