'The Wandering Unicorn,' by Manuel Mujica Lainez.

From demon-haunted France to the High Crusades, 'The Wandering Unicorn' will take you on a magical dangerous journey with the legendary Melusine, an enchanting half-woman, half fairy who alters her shape as startlingly as this book will alter your imagination.

"A dazzling cavalcade of men and horses, monsters and miracles, devils, angels, chivalry, incest, ecstasy, Knight templars, fabulous beasts.."


Out of print though, so be prepared to hunt high and low for it.

'Looking For Alibrandi' by Melina Marchetta.

'Josephine Alibrandi is seventeen, illegitimate, and in her final year at a wealthy Catholic school. This is the year her father comes back into her life, the year she falls in love, the year she discovers secrets of her family's past and the year she sets herself free.'

Multiaward winning and hugely popular, 'Looking for Alibrandi' has become a classic of modern young adult literature.

I highly recommend Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman. I literally sat down and devoured the book in almost one sitting. It's the folklore. You mix folklore with good fiction and you've got me.

a little morning music [Sep. 29th, 2005|08:18 am]

I love this song. I love its refrain. Maybe because I love the idea of having somewhere to turn when things get completely fucked.

queen jane approximately - bob dylanCollapse )

The song, so no one can call me a 'chord tease'

And in honor of Spanish, which I am taking the morning off from in order to catch up on other chores...

La Tequilera - Aida & Carlos Cuevas

Portrait in Sepia by Isabelle Allende

The precursor, Daughter of Fortune, is a good read too.

Though, in all seriousness, most ANYTHING written by Isabelle Allende has been a good read for me. I'm working my way through reading all her books.
