W. Somerset Maugham – Liza of Lambeth

Elaine Pagels – Beyond Belief: The Secret Gospel of Thomas

Graham Greene – The Quiet American

4. John has signed and sent his acceptance letter to UNO. Soon we will go to look for a place to live, soon meaning November. Now I can't wait to quit my Sunday part-time job!
