Wicked Virgin 2
If you can find it, (there are copies floating around the internet - bays where pirates hang out, for instance) and are amiable to audiobooks, listen to the BBC Radio audio version, read by Geoffrey Palmer. His voice does this story justice.

I was introduced to this excellent book by the excellent video game Deus Ex. Books with quotes were scattered throughout the game world. I was so interested I went out and borrowed it from the library. They don't make 'em like they used to.

Since I'm not 15 anymore, I should give the book a re-read. Thanks for the reminder!

@ 1. It's Sunday. It's a sleepy-afternoon blog post. I give myself permission to relax.

I give you permission to relax, too.

One of my favorite books. Thank god there aren't too many Chestertons--our work would be more difficult. Tho maybe our world would be a better place.

Would you consider PJ O'Rourke or maybe Christopher Buckley to be heirs to Chesterton--except that he was so Catholic.
