A big pile of books in today:
Tanith Carey's Never Kiss A Man In A Canoe: Words of Wisdom from the Golden Age of Agony Aunts.
Elaine Showalter, A Literature of Their Own: British Women Novelists from Brontë to Lessing (old, but good. I must have loaned my copy to some thieving hound)
Philip Roth, The Professor of Desire
Dillard, Star Trek: First Contact (your opinion on this is a matter of supreme indifference to me)
Sharon Marcus, Between Women: Friendship, Desire and Marriage in Victorian England. I was reading round the subject of women's magazines last week, and this caught my eye.
Unfortunately, I have this lot to read - and then more due in - before I can touch any of these. Dissertations… shudder.
