Who knew I'd blog about boxing?

I'm only incidentally blogging about boxing, though. The Guardian has a list of Markus Zusak's top ten boxing books. I've written on, and have been teaching, his novel, The Book Thief. It's one of the most amazing books about - though it only features a little boxing.

Today I've been embracing the frustration of finding fairy tales that are collected with different titles. It's one of the hiccups of dealing with translations and the truth of the matter is that I don't speak Italian... apart from the spattering of words required to order coffee and buy museum tickets. It would be very handy to speak Italian right now.
