Lost White Tribes by Riccardo Orizio
Rate this book
Clear rating
I should warn readers at the outset that the title of this book is probably the most interesting thing about it. The idea that there might be such as a lost white tribe subtly subverts our sense of the natural order of things. As provocative notions ...more

The Social Lives of Dogs by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas
Rate this book
Clear rating
Roughly speaking, all social behavior falls somewhere between two poles: rigid conformity and utter anarchy. Depending on our own temperament and social grooming, most of us tend to be attracted to one of the two and repulsed by the other. We are Apo ...more

Flophouse by Dave Isay
Rate this book
Clear rating
There are certain self-destructive activities about which, by temperament, I simply haven't a clue, and topping that list are gambling, drinking, and doing drugs. This is by no means a moral position. Doing these things -- and at one time or another ...more

Lonely Planet Hello Goodnight by David Tomory

This unusually fine travel book, written in a taut, literate prose, is a contemporary portrait of Goa -- that tiny and eccentric nodule on the Indian coast facing out across the Indian Ocean toward Arabia. David Tomory gives us a complex sense of how ...more

Rate this book
Clear rating
I spent an entire evening reading this book from cover to cover, first because I was drawn into it and then because I wanted to get it out of my life. I gave it two stars because there are some very imaginatively scary moments throughout the tale. Bu ...more

Tokyo Year Zero by David Peace
Rate this book
Clear rating
I found the story compelling despite the author's extremely annoying stylistic tics (turn to page 176 for a perfect example) but about halfway through I realized that I been conned into crawling across a bed of sharp rusty nails. So does the author f ...more
