Bookmania reviews, Dec. 1996

Six Records of a Floating Life, Shen Fu
A slacker from long ago….
Chinese poetry
Damn it, what was that book called… ugh! A cool book of literary criticism type rambling about Chinese poetry. Cool stuff about a poem’s “chi”.
The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, John Le Carre
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, John Le Carre (rr)
A Small Town in Germany, John Le Carre
The Book of Mars, NASA, circa 1960
Not a book to read all the way through, but the section on the possibility of life on Mars, and contamination of the Earth by virulent Martian plagues, was rich. It’s nice to know our government has some imagination…
