Summer reading 2015

Summer holiday is nearing. 

I am off to East Greece in a month : Thessaloniki, The meteores, The Athos Mountain...

The books i chose this year are :

Shadow country by Peter Matthiessen. Is this the Great American Novel ?

Stendhal, The Charterhouse of Parma. Since Mendelsohn wrote about it in his collection of essays “Waiting for Barbarians”, I have been curious about this work.

The Station: Travels to the Holy Mountain of Greece by Robert Byron. Another of the writer’s “holy texts”, which will add an additionall tang to my virst glimpses of the Pantocrator.
