new book

of whom and of what indeed can i say: "i know that!" this heart within me i can feel, and i judge that it exists. this world i can touch, and i likewsie judge that it exists. there ends all my knowledge, and the rest is construction.

i just finished albert camus' the myth of sisyphus and other essays. i enjoyed it, but not as much as i liked the rebel. it was a good introduction to his notion of the absurd life which he later expands on in the latter book. he seemed to rely a lot on dostoevsky (which i have never read) and kafka (i've on read the trial) , so i was a bit lost when he referred to them, especially in his discussion of the absurd and fiction.

among wolves - scott o'conner

next up is scott o'conner's among wolves, which is about... i'm not sure. it's supposed to be good though. it's also a very short read, so i should easily finish it this weekend if not sooner.
