Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
A novel about coming of age in the Sixties and Seventies. First the things lost in those decades, then the necessary abandoning of the worst parts of them in search of reality again.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Oh boy! Assuming here one did not just emerge from under a rock and already knows of the Bible, Homer, Virgil, art of the ancient world, Michelangelo, Bernini, Newton,Shakespeare et al., then we can go on to Dante, Evelyn Waugh, T.S. Eliot, G.M. Hopkins, W.B. Yeats, Augustus St. Gaudens, the Pre-Raphaelites, William Morris.....well, after this I would have to go from "Every one needs to know" to "I should like you to know"
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
