5.0 out of 5 stars Genet's greatest masterpiece., 23 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Genet was in prison when he wrote this brilliant and sparkling book. His spirit floats free of his prison cell and he peoples his world with a cast of petty thieves, homosexuals and murderers. From this material he constructs a literary masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mathematical revolution., 23 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Godel was a mathematical iconoclast. He upended the work of Hilbert and Bertrand Russell and showed that not everything that is true in mathematics can actually be proved. Fascinating and clearly written.

5.0 out of 5 stars To Rome, 18 Aug 2009
Not a roaming book since it describes a journey taken in an actual straight line, but the meanders are there all right - in the wanderings within the mind. A fascinating inner journey set against Europe's most spectacular scenery.
