Saturday 17/04/10

Do you know what I would like? I would like innumerable editions of the book Less Than Zero. I would like it from different publishers, with different covers, in different languages, from different years. This is what I want to do with my life. Got any?

flygye12, you're thinking of Isla Fisher's character in Definitely Maybe. I thought that was quite a cute little idiosyncrasy actually!

I think I'd quite like to do the same with my favourite book, when I finally decide what it is.

Less Than Zero is ok, but I did prefer Glamorama.

I've got the original UK paperback edition (I read it overnight in one sitting - I was 15).

But you can't have it - sorry!

Try ABE Books, or Alibris. Or even Amazon in each of those countries. Possibly you would like to be GIVEN these books, but if not, your collection is only a few (well, > 10 and hopefully less than 500) clicks away (not counting online translation tools - if needed). Enjoy the varied ways the words of a fairly mediocre book can be presented. Ole!

Hey there!Just found your blog, and reading through it, i realize you have some kind of connection with Greece? Are you Greek? Not that it makes any difference. Just wondering. This is one helluva blog.

Love
p.s. i got Less than zero, in Greek. interesting to see how some writers translate in greek, hehe

sometimes after sex, when his defenses are down, i'll pull the guy close and hit him with pseudo-casual questions, try to pinpoint the exact moment in life his development became arrested.

with you it's like shooting fish in a barrel, and we didn't even have to fuck.
