Have any of my readers read Pharaoh?
It's an historical novel by late 19th/early-20th Century Polish writer Bolesław Prus. I stumbled over it on a Wiki-wander and it looks fascinating.
(In other news, writing-related, my fine old Compaq keyboard died. It may be time for a visit to Buckling Springs, though not this paycheck -- Family Christmas comes early this year.)
