New Post

It may not have been Publisher's Weekly but one of the reviews cited by Amazon noted that Troyat's penchant for gruesome details made his biography Czar Peter superfluous. I hesitate to term thusly but I did feel a pang of regret yesterday after noting the absence of a mass-market copy of the Massie biography of Peter. That said, i have read 120 pages, coursing through Peter's tour of Europe under his aegis as student, in need of teachers.

I picked up the Patrick Hamilton and became enchanted. The protagonist is eerily similar to my friend Stephen Powell.
