really liked it
bookshelves: 2011
Read from May 23 to August 03, 2011

Admittedly, these journals are very repetitive, he is constantly reminding himself of how he needs to keep working all the time, how he can never have a close relationship with a woman, how he loves his hometown of D.C. but can never stay there for long, etc. but I still find the books compelling. It's interesting to hear about all the "vacations" he takes to places like Iran and Pakistan for example. These later works get more political as well. I also strangely enjoy all the emotional blood-letting, it's cathartic to read if you happen to be in a particularly bad mood, which I strive to be in at all times.
