Via Arthur Hlavaty (and others) is a new BBC list of the 100 best British novels of all time. And the winner is Middlemarch by George Eliot, which of course I haven't read, and now I need to read it. And I still haven't read Virginia Woolf! Though I have my doubts about a list that puts Pride and Prejudice only at No. 11.
Speaking of reading, I heard from Ben Turpin, who mentioned that he had just re-read the essay "Hidden Manna and the Holy Grail: The Psychedelic Sacrament in Arthurian Romance." That's by Dan Merkur, a psychoanalyst and writer whose works are new to me (and which include a book called The Mystery of Manna: The Psychedelic Sacrament of the Bible. ) He certainly sounds interesting; have any of y'all besides Ben read him?
