Read in December, 2006

the famous story about bruno shultz is that he used to crumble cubes of suger during the winter and when his mother caught him doing this, he would explain his actions by saying "...so at least the flies will survive the winter!" when I heard this story, I had to read his book.
The book is a collection of short stories, mostly centered around the narrator's father, as mentioned in previous reviews. I think any attempt to describe the father's charactor will not be able to do this accuratly so I will not even try. But I will say that whenever I read this book, I feel like every paragraph has more content and more depth then any normal bestseller novel. At times the book made me laugh out loud but it always felt like a somewhat sad and even tragic book. I am aware that perhaps most readers will find this book boring but I think that this is a book to be read (and enjoyed!) countless times.
