My dad did so right by his review, that I'll spare you most of my mumblings.

The book has continued growing on me since I read it. Its images, rendered mostly in long-shadowed black and white, keep growing more vivid. Definitely worth spending time wi

Self-Made Man by Norah Vincent

Mediocre, at best. Interesting idea, but unenlightening writing.
The story, as I read it:

"I thought it would be interesting and informative to live as a man for a year.
I spent a year pretending to be a man in public, and frequently disclosed the "r

This is a must-read.
Brilliant moments. A sense of the senselessness of war, lent weight by the story's honest and forthcoming plot, makes this a book worthy of everyone's time.

Though less accessible, some of the modern poets (HD, Eliot) communicate

Queen of Angels by Greg Bear

Formatted with interesting (and remarkably effective) alternate grammar, esp. around speech/thought, Queen of Angels well-written. And fun, if you can dig on a murder mystery with a heavy dose of psychology.

Leo Tolstoy
“When politics and home life have become one and the same thing, [...] then,[...] it is evident that we will be in a state of total liberty or anarchy.”
Leo Tolstoy

Thomas Jefferson
“Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.”
Thomas Jefferson

Tom Hodgkinson
“If Adam and Eve were not hunter-gatherers, then they were certainly gatherers. But, then, consumer desire, or self-embitterment, or the 'itch,' as Schopenhauer called it, appeared in the shape of the serpent. This capitalistic monster awakens in Adam and Eve the possibility that things could be better. Instantly, they are cast out of the garden and condemned to a life of toil, drudgery, and pain. Wants supplanted needs, and things have been going downhill ever since. ”
Tom Hodgkinson, The Freedom Manifesto

Mark Twain
“Man has imagined a heaven, and has left entirely out of it the supremest of all his delights...sexual intercourse!...His heaven is like himself: strange, interesting, astonishing, grotesque. I give you my word, it has not a single feature in it that he actually values.”
Mark Twain

“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.”
