It's indeed that one, I really love it so far, haven't finished it yet. The Elementary Particles is also on my shelve, that's the next one. I've read a bit too much non-fiction lately so it's fun to read books like that now. I would really like to read his poetry but it's practically unobtainable here in Belgium, I've already searched for it in every book store the last two years.

I don't know about this one, but Elementary Particles is just part fiction. Mostly it's a reply to Foucault's "History of Sexuality", and it deals with it in part by fiction and part by journalistic analysis. Same with Platform, which is a like an appendix to Elementary Particles, dealing with a specific question raised in it, namely sex tourism.

There's a lot of speculation, so you have to take it with a grain of salt. Still good though.

Nice short book on how the prison system is outdated and how it is a racist / sexist institution to this day. I'm sure the UK isn't much better but a lot of the stats on American prisons are pretty appalling. That place is fucked up.

Re: What are you robots reading right now?

as a philosophy it's true -- but this guy argues that before reaching nirvana (existential death) buddhists have to practice "right action" or behave nicely/ karma.  most are in it as a religion

Somehow the guy makes it interesting enough. The only real issue I have is with the Apple fetishism. Annoying. For his contributions, William Gibson gets a pass on this one.

Any good so far? Been wanting to read something by him for a while now. Wikipedia describes his work as humorous and surreal, with themes like loneliness and alienation. Sounds very promising smile

Earlier this week, I started reading my very first Russian Classic: Nikolai Gogol's Dead Souls.
