Judith Freeman's (my first of her) was well crafted.

Well, I decided to honor your good taste by taking one of your suggestions, Ron. I didn't want to read any porno, so I decided to read Wolfe instead of Roth. I just got back from the public library where I checked out THE SHADOW OF THE TORTURER by Gene Wolfe. I so glad that you recommended Wolfe, he has long been one of my favorite authors..........

Heh, heh... I'm just kidding. I decided that you must have meant Tom Wolfe instead of Thomas Wolfe or Gene Wolfe, and I'm going to try THE BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES by Tom Wolfe. And just to make my evening cultural I picked up the second Laura Croft TOMB RAIDERS from Blockbuster. <lol>

BTW, if you want to try a truly great Wolfe, read THE SHADOW OF THE TORTURER. Of course, Gene writes on a little higher reading level than Tom Wolfe.

Hmmmmm.... I wonder if they will ever do a movie of THE BOOK OF THE NEW SUN.
