I'm at the start of Act 2 of Much Ado About Nothing
, having first properly encountered the story via Joss Whedon's movie. Enjoying it immensely so far.
Recently finished Joyce's A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man
. This semi-autobiographical novel from very nearly a hundred years ago is erudite, emotionally charged, highly philosophical, quite modern-feeling and (considering his later output) remarkably coherent and straightforward.
