    M: I came here for a good argument.
    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    I haven't quite finished it yet but I'm currently reading The Never Game by Jeffrey Deaver. It's an enjoyable read and would be even more enjoyable for a video gamer. It's been a while since I read a Deaver novel.
    There are currently three books starring the protagonist Colter Shaw who writes his notes with a fountain pen. A Delta Titanio Galessia - apparently a "serious fountain pen." Just in case no-one else has read any of the series I thought I would mention it.

    It's also discussed in this blog

    The Whites by Richard Price. Left an icky taste in my mouth, but I finished it.

    Now I am reading David Sedaris's Happy-Go-Lucky, which I like better (mostly).

    Slow Horses, a spy satire by Mick Herron. Like Le Carré with a dark sense of humor.

    Conspirator' Hierarchy: The story of the committee of 300 by John Coleman - Non-fiction
    Very readable, not a long read, but detailed. There are enough references to believe much of this. If you know even some US history a lot fits. It will disagree w many liberals & their thoughts. It is very scary even if half true.
    This is most likely now called The World Economic Forum. (WEF)
