Hey, hey, hey! Who would say that a petty troll as GlennM aka Gu-Gu is, has such wonderful tastes in literature...I saw his lists earlier.
George Orwell - Down And Out In Paris And London is a great book, it's been 20 years how I read it. "Plonger"!
Whenever I come at the restaurant or at the hotel for lunch, I remember Orwell's stories and I got sick.
It's been translated on serbian as "Nobody and Nothing in Paris and London" (literally).
At the moment, I'm reading "Half of the yellow sun", Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Beautiful.
