Re: PhD exams

I'd suggest all of LANGUAGE, COUNTER-MEMORY, PRACTICE, and relevant
chapters of ORDER OF THINGS. The latter is pretty tough going, but well
worth it. Also: MADNESS AND CIVILIZATION, despite what I hear about flaws
in the edition, is still important.
And I'd go with F himself and *avoid* any biography of him, esp.
for exams.
