Nightwood by Djuna Barnes
"Nightwood is the sound of hearts breaking, written on the page, spread out for all to see, five lives, five people eviscerated and eviscerating each other. These people fucking kill me, they are so sad and so full of nonsense and so determined to..." Read more of this review »

This book is terrible. And at five hundred plus pages, it is too long to get away with it.
After the advent of time travel, “historians” as a profession stop reading and writing history and start visiting it. Our three heroes all travel back to World

Dune by Frank Herbert
"Verdict: You should read this book. You should respect this book. Liking it is up to you.

So Dune. Interesting stuff. I ran across the movie on Freeview a year or two ago. It made the littlest sense I am capable of conceiving. Since then I haven’t..." Read more of this review »

This was my third Dostoyevsky, and I’m kind of amazed it took me as long as it did to get to it. Myshkin is our naïve and delicate protagonist, recently returned to Russia from a sanatorium in Switzerland where he has been treated for debilitating ep ...more

Tom Stoppard
“A man breaking his journey between one place and another at a third place of no name, character, population or significance, sees a unicorn cross his path and disappear. That in itself is startling, but there are precedents for mystical encounters of various kinds, or to be less extreme, a choice of persuasions to put it down to fancy; until--"My God," says a second man, "I must be dreaming, I thought I saw a unicorn." At which point, a dimension is added that makes the experience as alarming as it will ever be. A third witness, you understand, adds no further dimension but only spreads it thinner, and a fourth thinner still, and the more witnesses there are the thinner it gets and the more reasonable it becomes until it is as thin as reality, the name we give to the common experience... "Look, look!" recites the crowd. "A horse with an arrow in its forehead! It must have been mistaken for a deer.”
Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
