Hi folks,

I've been reading Beerbohm's "Zuleika Dobson." It's a hoot - very  
funny stuff. It's tough going in parts - written as it was in 1911,  
it's quite literate in that it's filled with short quotations from  
classic works of Latin, French, and Italian without translation. Also  
some of the vocabulary is tough (All this in spite of my own strong  
backgroundi n the classics!) so I need to keep a dictionary nearby.   
But it's worth it. I recommend it.
