Upon A Knoll

With all the smarmy revelations about News Corporation, I found jean echenoz's novel Lightning of peculiar interest. It is a brisk biographical novel about Nikola Tesla, though he's referred to as Gregor throughout. His encounters with Edison, Westinghouse and J.P. Morgan all brought Mr. Murdoch to mind. I can attest that dark smiles proliferated.

I also read The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells and found it horrible.

One of the Sinclair books arrived.
