    Landscape Painted With Tea is an interesting one I guess, though I never really solved the crossword puzzles and figured out the second half properly

    We went to the modern art museum in Lisbon yesterday and saw a couple of de Chiricos... reminded me of this book which I enjoyed and fits here

    The artist Giorgio de Chirico's novel, Hebdomeros is a dream-like book of situations and landscapes reminiscent of his paintings. In his introduction John Ashbery calls the book "the finest work of Surrealist fiction," noting that de Chirico "invented for the occasion a new style and a new kind of novel . . . his long run-on sentences, stitched together with semi-colons, allow a cinematic freedom of narration . . . his language, like his painting, is invisible: a transparent but dense medium containing objects that are more real than reality."
    Basically it's a long stream of consciousness rant as far as I remember but one of the better ones.
