In 1943, her novel Two Serious Ladies was published. The Bowleses lived in New York until 1947 when Paul moved to Tangier, Morocco; Jane followed him in 1948. While in Morocco, Jane had an intense and complicated relationship with a Moroccan woman named Cherifa.



Paul and Jane got introduced by Erica Mann



Charifa; Morocco, Tangier or puton the Ritz

Just finished this one. This ought to be a revolutionary book that is going to change eating habits and end the diabetes and heart disease pandemics. Only time will tell though, if Big Food and Big Pharma will lose the power enough for this to happen.
So I hope this is just an early step to the next biggest sea change in human society.
I thoroughly recommend to to all.

Chthon, Piers Anthony.

This is an early work by Anthony where he seems to be wrestling with his sexual desires and what appears to be an Oedipus complex. The book got weird around page 150, by the time it got to 175 it became quite a struggle to figure out WTF the book was about and where he wanted to go.
I'd generally recommend any of PA's work but not this one.

Skimming 'Putting the Rabbit in the Hat'

Brian Cox, touching nerves but can not buy it. On a steep decline. Want to lift it but recent indulagance in jarmia freezes me.


So full of characterizations of admirable actors.

..genealogy, haplogroups, what constitutes/makes a European a European, the origins and admixture of Europeans, etc.
