I get payed at midnight tonight. Im going on an Amazon binge.
get Man in the High Castle by Philip K Dick though that was good
amazon do a collection of the three kafka novels as well which is a good read
and i was waiting for some sarky so and so to say that
the wrong board.
But she doesn't mean the band.
So it isn't after all.
is a great book. its written from the mother's perspective whose son shoots up his school. slow to start, but definitely worth a read.
a poetry book from Silver Jews man David Berman
Hands down the best thing I've ever read.
it's not much like the film though.
by Elizabeth Smart, if you're in the mood for tragic romance. And who isn't, really?
I like the book of Job best.
in that case I wholly recommend 'Stiff' by Mary Roach and 'Mutants' by Armand Marie Leroi. Two excellent books.
the new york trilogy, paul auster
howards end, e m forster
victoria, knut hamsun
the three best books i've read in the last 12 months.
king lear is good too if you fancy some shakespeare.
i just bought In Cold Blood, but first need to re-read THe Return of the Native, Othello and Cantebury Tales :(
read Lunar Park also by Brett Easton Ellis, which is apparently wonderful
life after god by douglas coupland, and jesus' son by denis johnson
as enjoyable as watching a massacre of baby seals.
and morrissey ripped it off for 'well I wonder' my favourite smiths song.
but actually a lot more grounded than most other examples of poetic prose. And a lot more convincing too. You actually believe the heroine feels as intensely as she claims to, it doesn't just come off as hollow hyperbole. For me, at least.
oh i do
What a beautiful story. I'm reading On Deconstruction by Jonathan Culler and its interesting, if a little "taxing"
rather lengthy conversation in a coffee shop with a man that had been commissioned to do a screen adaptation of a Vonnegut novel and I cant for the life of me remember which one or what his name was. But he was the first ever Turkish rapper that made it into the charts.
