Indeed they are, even if I'll basically never need to use them for my boring analytical course.

I'm enjoying the Reynolds/Press book, I've loved a lot of the other stuff that he's written and this offers some interesting perspectives on identity in rock (although it does seem a little negative on riot grrrl). Should probably read more gender theory so that it can be linked into more stuff.

Also on track to borrow The Shock Doctrine.

A journalist written book about Emmanuel Macron's path to his first presidency, portraying him as a piece of...

Alain Damasio's les Furtifs (hyped sci-fi related French writer, using quite a demanding style for a somewhat interesting story tasting like fantasy with too big chunks of over-intelligent-childish fodder and a self-centered main character who's adored by so many other characters that it made me want to skip pages - and there are many pages)

Tolstoi's War and Peace
BS Johnson's The Unfortunates (a translation of it, I couldn't find the original through the English bookstore in Paris I order UK/US books from)
Intriguing form, making re-reads more interesting perhaps in your perception of it if you shuffle your deck again

A Flemish writer who in the early seventies wrote a book about the Flemish kitchen.
It's actually a compilation of columns he wrote for a newspaper.

It's very funny, and it's about food.

This is a re-edition from 2015 which has recipes from a Flemish chef-cook.

Still reading The Brothers Karamazov
Slow and steady, I guess. And I have every intention of finishing it. It is in fact a resolution of mine for this year. Also Iíve had some life stuff come up (job interviews, DATING, work shit) so Iíve been spending less time reading in general.

Iím about 3/4 of the way through it. Tremendous literary achievement already. I think there are some surprises in store yet, but wow, this book deserves its reputation.

I haven't reached the meat part yet, it's divided into more or less three parts: bread, vegetables (including potatoes), and meat. Oh no, four parts, last is deserts
I skipped most of the bread part for now, and am on the end of the veggies part.
But there's no specific recipe for the carbonnade flamande. Perhaps it is mentioned somewhere in the meat section. I did find this recipe though: https://www.ah.nl/allerhande/recept/...onade-flamande
It's from the local supermarket ;-) Perhaps you can google translate it.
Mind you though, we cut the meat differently in Netherlands (and Europe) versus the US.
This is more of a winter dish though, but I might still make this some day, I love beef stew, and never made it this way.


This is confusing for me I always thought a carbonade was pork meat. ..
