recommended reading







It seems fitting to follow a book about the vacuous life of Hollywood types with another that's entitled The Beautiful And The Damned by F Scott Fitzgerald - one of my all-time favourite authors. (It's included in Penguin's latest batch of Popular "orange" Penguins - they've just added another 75 titles).




I also grabbed a copy of Washington Square by Henry James - another great author. I'm a big fan of alternating lighter, fluffier reads with Fiction with a captial F.

As a visual antidote, I'll be grabbing a copy of SoHi from Orson & Blake in Surry Hills, which now stocks the magazine on creatives in the Southern Highlands of NSW. You can buy it online here.

Other recommendations welcome.

What about Thomas Mann `Death in Venice`? The film by Visconti is great, too.

SOHI looks like a beautiful magazine. Must check it out.
