White Noise by Don DeLillo
"I had this babysitter named Bernice who also was the postmistress of our wind swept Kansas town. My mom would drop me off at the post office which I'm pretty sure using the post office as a day care may have been against regulation, but this was s..." Read more of this review »

Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill
"
I read basically the entire novel. [1]

I tried to read it in a single sitting, but my wife kept yelling at me. [2]

I kept getting lost in the index. [3]

“The saddest journey in the world is the one that follows a precise itinerary. Then you're not a traveler. You're a f@@king tourist.”
