I asked Mike if he had ever read The Childermass by Wyndham Lewis. He told me no, but commented that Wyndham Lewis sounded like the name of a hotel. "We're staying at the Wyndham Lewis tonight." "Can you please take us to the Wyndham Lewis so that we can check in?" Hee.
Unfortunately, the actual reading of this book did not give me too much of a smile. I don't really care for Wyndham Lewis, the author. His books are thick, dry and I can never really tell what is going on in them. Until I read the Wikipedia entry, that is. This one apparently takes place in purgatory. Interesting since he alludes to it but I could not actually figure that out for myself just in reading the book.
I'm glad to be through this one (I pretty much skimmed once I realized I wasn't going to get anything out of it anyway) and onward and upward!
