i found (and bought) both about a year ago at my local borders book
store.  there are probably still a few copies of each still there.
not that you should go there to get them...they should be in other

fwiw - i've read both (the first one more than thrice) and understood
them, but don't really feel that much closer to it.  something about
not getting my teeth into the language leaves me on the outside.
