Reading ULYSSES by the Mekong


That's the Mekong River in the overly bright background. This is in Cambodia.

I bet I'm the first person in decades, perhaps in history, to be reading ULYSSES in Cambodia. Although Cambodia was a French colony once, and it's best not to underestimate French intellectuals. Perhaps they had a Phnom Penh ULYSSES book club in the early days, reading and discussing it by light of their opium lamps. Heck, with Joyce providing the opiate, they wouldn't even need the opium.

Many thanks, Ken.

Um, I don't believe ULYSSES is amenable to speed reading. Although it would make great final exam material for a speed reading course.
