New book: Fortinbras at the Fishhouses

The three Newcastle lectures now published by Bloodaxe under the title, Fortinbras at the Fishhouses: the Iron Curtain and the Sense of History as Knowledge. The three essays do make a conscious arc. And how can you resist that face? (Don't tell me: it's easy.)

Do I detect the tiniest hint of a well disguised smile there, George? Good luck with the book.

I hope it sells well - it's going on my ever-lengthening wishlist.

George S said...

Thank you, both. It's a bit of a mouthful of a title.
Tomorrow The Burning of the Books appears.

The man is made of books. Every word a page.

Good luck with both new books. I drove straight through the Hungarian iron curtain 3 days ago at Klingenbach in brilliant sunshine. Not even a stray dog to be seen. I had the place to myself. An almost eerie feeling.
