Smart, smart stuff. One theme is our derivative reactions, learned from movies and other media. For one, cops in real life play cops on TV -- borrow their postures, locutions, good/bad roles. But their suspects, etc. such as Nick recognize those post ...more

The Man Who Was Thursday by G.K. Chesterton
Rate this book
Clear rating
Beautiful, witty, ambitious, dreamlike, allegorical. It twists and builds and the ending is marvelous--full of marvel--and moving and larger than life. The less you know about it going in the better.

The Rifter is the single most absorbing book I have read. Like, ever. Or books--this fantasy novel is sold as ten ebooks and is also available in three print volumes.

John--gay, blond, huge, and an ecology grad student--is worried: his roommate Kyle h

A romance/mystery/fantasy (with demons and demon-hunters) that's super readable and fun, not least because it reads like slash fanfic, using tropes I've seen in stories I've liked: the two men on opposite "sides" in the world of the story, the initia ...more

Economix by Michael Patrick Goodwin
Rate this book

So good. The coolness of the concept (a history of economics in comics) is matched by the excellence of its execution. I'm not a reader of sequential art (though I did read Scott McCloud's classic once upon a time), but Economix illuminates comics to ...more

I love this translation. Which I say as someone who knows no Greek. It feels naked. Carson says in her introduction: "In translating I tried to put down all that can be read of each poem in the plainest language I could find, using where possible the ...more

Extraordinarily clever--which is another way of saying it's nigh impossible to talk about without spoilers.
