Gods Without Men by Hari Kunzro


Seaching for Caleb by Anne Tyler

Slow starter but builds terrifically.

Legitimate Dangers: American Poets of the New Century

Trying to set aside envy and self-pity is difficult.

The Beats: A Graphic History

Got this from the library-- as a goof! -- and really enjoyed it.  There's something perfect in tracing the memory and legacy of the beats as a series of black and white cartoon panels.  Can't judge the accuracy of the history in contains, but the spirit seems right.

The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson

Headache inducing.

First extended Kindle experience. Did not enjoy it.

Coincidence?

Like Philip Roth without pleasure.
