Journey to the End of Night by Louis-Ferdinand Celine

Side Effects by Woody Allen

I liked reading those little books by Woody Allen; I read that one, and one called "Horsefeathers."

I got turned on to Celine via reading Bukowsi; read "Journey to the End of the Night" years ago (Also, I had known that Jim Morrison wrote a song inspired by its title, if not its thematics.) Later on I found a copy of another good one by him called "Guignol's Band," which I still have...

Have you ever read Castle To Castle by Celine?  KInd of an erratic read, but interesting.  It's the true story of the author and a bunch of Nazis and Nazi sympathizers and collaborators retreating from the advancing Allied armies.  Celine actually did write some propaganda pamphlets for the Nazis during the Vichy France regime, and so earned a spot with the retreating Germans.  No one in the party really knew who he was or what exactly he was doing with them; they had a vague notion that somehow he had ties to Partei big shots, so he was reluctantly accepted as they retreated from "Castle To Castle".
