Breaking New Ground

The Guardian recently ran a list of "Tibor Fischer's top 10 Eastern European novels" -- I'm not sure who Tibor Fischer is, but he's apparently a novelist and of Hungarian heritage, so he's got the goods in my book. In an attempt to get off the Lawrence Block habit, at least for a bit, I'm gonna try to read them all. I've already read four -- Ċ vejk, "Omon Ra," "The Joke" and "General of the Dead Army" -- but it's years since I read even those, so I think I can approach this with a relatively fresh take.

This may be a rather nerdy and unproductive goal, but I'll take what I can get as far as self-improvement these days.
