  • Wow. Scary thought. Some day I'll reread that book....

  • It's a compelling but achingly-long read. I'm to write an essay on it due tomorrow...something about postmodernism and, you know how it goes.

  • I referred to The Magus in a discussion on priapus some time ago. Very good read, indeed. Highly recommended.

  • Thanks! It should be an interesting paper, as the book has fascinated close to the end!

    Aha, so you did, skipvia! I only knew about priapus from museums that had little statuettes with anatomical exaggerations. I'm learning a lot from this book. It's really quite entertaining.
