I read "A Canticle For Liebowitz" quite a few years ago. It took quite a while for me to get started but it has passed the acid test of about twenty, maybe twenty five years of memory. If I can find it I would not hesitate to read it again.

The latest book I am reading is "Nigger" by Randal Kennedy. He is a black english professor, I believe at one of the Ivy League Schools. He reminds me somewhat of S.I. Hywakawa the way he analyzes the various uses and understood plus "misunderstood" meanings. So far it is is interesting.
