Second volume of Somerset Maugham's short stories, appropriately lent me by a gay French expat.

Could you be more predictable in your reading habits, lol.

Haha, yes.  My favorite authors are Waugh, Huxley, Baron Berners, Ronald Firbank, Nabokov, and good old Maugham.  I do love Orwell of course, but obviously he's not the old-shoe fit these others are.

I just realized this is only supposed to be about political books. I guess I don't often read those.

I finished my Tolstoy short stories and now I'm about to finish a book called In Praise of Older Women. I made a deal with a female friend that we would recommend and lend each other a book and read until our next encounter. She gave me that, which is a strange Hungarian book chronicling a man's sexual adventures with older women, basically. A fun read but a bit weird.

That sounds right up my alley.  Is your friend an Older Woman?  Perhaps she's sending you a not-so-subtle hint.

I'm currently reading one of Somerset Maugham's lesser works - The Magician.

No time for books - I just reread Saki's "On Approval"

I love short stories, usually the shorter the better.  Feels like taking a pill.
