Finally having some time off from work and other commitments, I was able to do belated Eid shopping. Hallelujah for old book shops!
From top to bottom, in picture one, are:
1: The Jargon of Authenticity, by Theodore Adorno; having identified with existentialist thought for quite a while, I felt it was finally time to start reading its criticisms, and what better place to start than one of its most aggressive critics?
2: The Interrogation, by Le Clezio; purported to be a cross between Dostoevsky and Camus, two of my favorite writers, this was endorsed by a member of an online book club I am a part of.
3: The Red Badge Of Courage, by Stephen Crane; one of my favorite books while growing up and, along with My Side Of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George, one of the great American classics; I’m looking forward to a heavy dose of nostalgia, more than 20 years since last reading it.
4: Philosophy of Mind, by Edward Feser; combining my two favorite subjects, neurology and philosophy.
5: A Hologram for the King, by Dave Eggers; because look at that cover!
