Agnar Mykle (1915-1994)

today is the centennial of one of Norway's best known novelists.

I confess that it's been so long since I read his Song of the Red Ruby that I don't remember it at all.  but I do recall having great regard for it while I was in high school.  perhaps not quite as much regard as I had for Prokosch's The Asiatics.  but they were both provocative works for a young man.

so when I think of him on this day I'm also thinking of the young me.
