thinking about unsolved problems in mathematics and reading novels

trying to work out where the door is

My Scrabble skills are fairly well developed, though I've gotten out of practice. Quite a beautiful game, I think: none of the austere purity of chess or the like, but full of accidents.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Paul Scott, Martin Amis, Colm Tóibín, Isherwood, Highsmith, Fitzgerald, Hardy, Nabokov, ...

Coen brothers, David Lynch, The Draughtsman's Contract, Farewell My Concubine, 3 Women
