Memoirs of My Nervous Illness and Recommended V-Day Reading

I just finished Daniel Schreber's Memoirs of My Nervous Illness and now I'm finishing up My Mistress' Sparrow is Dead, a love story anthology edited by Jeffrey Eugenides (in time for Valentine's Day) -- great collection and the proceeds go to benefit 826 Chicago. Plus What to Expect When You're Expecting, which I read in weekly installments. I'm also starting to read the work of Leon Bloy, I'm hoping to translate some of his short stories into English.
