Susan Sontag: Illness as Metaphor & AIDS and Its Metaphors
Required reading for anyone thinking about the social and cultural impact of punitive metaphors associated with illness and disease.
Paul Beatty: The White Boy Shuffle
I just started this, but good so far.
Philip Roth: The Human Stain
Very, very, very good.
Raymond E. Feist: Exile's Return: Conclave of Shadows, Book Three
A good conclusion to the series. Action-packed, good character development and interesting plot. Looking forward to the next series.
N. Katherine Hayles : How We Became Posthuman
We're already cyborgs!
I'm a 27 year old teacher (English as a foreign language) who probably spends too much time behind his trusty iMac right now. I have an MA (Cum Laude) in American Studies and am also a certified language teacher. I like books, film, visual arts, design and technology.
Here's where I blog:
I have a resume available on request in English (outdated) and in Dutch. I'm available for freelance writing gigs and the like. You can see some writing samples here.
I also post links at Del.icio.us.
