My spellchecker must have made a Freudian slip. (I mean to say, it's not like me to make a mistake, is it?) Makes you wonder about what goes on in the deeper recesses of artificial intelligence, don't it? I'll try to keep a closer eye on my software in future. It can't be trusted. I'd like to read what you think about the Peace novel/s. A few people whose taste I think highly of have recommended it & I'd be interested in seeing what other people think also. I don't think I've seen any of his stuff in the local bookshops & I'd like to know more about them, whether they'd be worth the expense of importing them.
