Go Go Go! Read More!!

Another sigh of relief… I’ve finished the first few batches of work. Expecting the money, I bought “All the President’s Men” (30th anniversary edition, Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward) and 「嘘つきアーニャの真っ赤な真実」(米原万里).

“All the President’s Men” is, quite needless to say, a must-read for anyone involved in journalism, though I guess very few Singaporean journalists have read this monumental book. I simply can’t read Alicia C. Shepard’s “Woodward and Bernstein: Life in the Shadow of Watergate” without this bible. And 「嘘つきアーニャの真っ赤な真実」is about her journey to find her old friends at the Prague Soviet School after some 30 years.
