Satori in Paris by Jack Keroauc.
A series of poems in a stream of consciousness and rambles. Post-fame Kerouac goes to France to trace his roots. Despite all the drinking, its more upbeat than his other last novel, Big Sur -which is one ugly book. If you like On the Road, you might like it.

About Love and Other Stories by Anton Chekhov
A collection of short stories themed around tragedy. The translation feels natural, the prose is lyrical and timed. I liked the 'The lady with the little dog' and 'In the cart'.??

Currently reading: The Idiot by Dostoevsky.
