Through It All I've Always Laughed by Count Arthur Strong. A hysterical "autobiography"

Highly recommended!!

Sadly, I haven't read anything for fun since earlier in the winter when I thoroughly enjoyed Catch-22. At the moment, I'm preparing for assignments, so the only books I've been reading have been a chapter here and a chapter there of textbooks such as Freud: The Collected Works, Counselling: An Introduction, The Trainee Handbook: A Guide for Counselling & Psychotherapy Trainees, Counselling: The BACP Counselling Reader.

I look forward to the summer months when I can catch up on some very different books. However, it might be back to the textbooks in September or October if I decide to continue studying.

I feel your pain, I'm actually settling down to this right now



I only get to read for pleasure on my commute to work each day!

I'm not currently reading a novel, just dipping in and out of this weighty tome.

Something i've been doing on and off since i bought it ten years back. 1200 pages is a lot of Ballard.

I've been continually flicking through this on and off for the past few months...



Plus, I'm currently re-reading this:



Haven't read it since my teens.

Does it work reading it as an adult? I read it in my teens too, my Mum recommended it to me!

I'm only about 20 pages in but so far so good! Have you read any of the follow-up novels The Search for the Dice Man, Adventures of Wim and The Book of the Die perchance? I may try and seek them out if The Dice Man lives up to the favourable reception it received from my teenage angst-ridden self now that I'm an angst-ridden 'adult'.

I've not, but I'm not angst ridden!
