What Jia's reading

What Geoffrey's reading

  • Andrew Hussey: Paris: The Secret History

    Andrew Hussey: Paris: The Secret History
    This is soft, anecdotal history without hard facts or convincing arguments, but it's still a fun read. Influenced by the History Channel and London: The Biography by Peter Ackroyd, it features the unwashed, licentious and satanic elements of Parisian society.

  • Thomas Gordon Smith: Vitruvius on Architecture

    Thomas Gordon Smith: Vitruvius on Architecture
    This is a beautiful edition of a text I've always had in the inexpensive Dover version, but have never taken time to read. It is the bible of classical architecture, the Roman source and inspiration for all Renaissance, Mannerist and Baroque styles to follow. Smith has done a wonderful job of annotating and illustrating the text with original diagrams and numerous photographs.

  • Richard Phillips Feynman: The Pleasure of Finding Things Out and the Meaning of It All

    Richard Phillips Feynman: The Pleasure of Finding Things Out and the Meaning of It All
    Our son has been admitted to California Institute of Technology, so I have begun to read about one of his heroes, the late Caltech professor of physics Richard Feynman, who was ever ready to admit his own ignorance and his belief that healthy science is based on an acceptance of doubt. This is an enlightening read.

  • W. Allyn Rickett: Guanzi

    W. Allyn Rickett: Guanzi
    Masterful translation of the classic Chinese book on statecraft and economic management, begun in the 3rd Century BC in the state of Qi (Shandong today).

  • Ben Okri: Songs of Enchantment
    Simply one of the most evocative writers in English today. Ben Okri won the 1991 Booker Prize for The Famished Road. This continues the story of a boy torn between this world and the world of spirits.
  • Connie Willis: To Say Nothing of the Dog : How We Found the Bishop's Bird Stump at Last

    Connie Willis: To Say Nothing of the Dog : How We Found the Bishop's Bird Stump at Last
    Fun blend of time travel scifi, costume drama and romance. A summer read recommneded by Book Lust

  • Margaret Atwood: The Robber Bride

    Margaret Atwood: The Robber Bride
    Takes me back to the Toronto of my tender years.

I like this picture of such a great soul.

吕佳;
 今天正在看电视,突然接到过去北京海军当兵时的一位战友的短信,短信中说"还记得当年海军总医院的女兵画家吕佳吗?找到了她的博客了."---
 吕佳在我的记忆中是一个位大眼睛的美女,高个子,蓝球打得极好,因为是吕恩宜的女儿,画画当然是第一流的.这种记忆象一幅油画,一直珍藏在脑海的深处.
 我是1971年的上海兵,当年有点机会,去了海军大院俱乐部帮助工作,常有机会跟着吕恩宜,艾民友,吴敏,王喜贵,毛文彪等海军画家们后面转悠,因此也跟着学点画画的基本知识,后来记不清在什么场合认识了吕佳,记得有一次去海军总医院看病,还到吕佳的办公室去呆了一会.
 后来听说吕佳去了加拿大,那时去加拿大是件很不容易的事,毕竟是远隔了万里.慢慢地就把关于美女画家吕佳的一切都封藏在记忆的深处了.转眼间都三十多年过去了,今天突然又看见了吕佳,真的很激动啊.

吕佳:您好!
终于找到您的博客了,我不懂英文,所以颇费周折。
您还是那么漂亮,跟几年前一样,彭汉成也还是那么帅气。
祝你们新年一切顺利!
