Emma by Jane Austen

Oh my goodness, did I love. At one point, toward the end, when the thing that Austen was working toward happened, I literally fell down from the couch to the rug. Emma herself is a unique creation, a headstrong, misguided, self-confident girl who we ...more

A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
Rate this book
Clear rating
Charming, ranging, generous, memoir of Paris, stuffed full of memorable lines ("Never Any End to Paris") and packed with the luminaries of the expat era. How weird to read a book where Joyce is just sort of around, where Gertrude Stein and Alice Tokl ...more

Pedigree by Patrick Modiano
Rate this book
Clear rating
Oddly minor memoir, essentially a list of people and addresses from Modiano's (400-Blows level of french negligence) childhood. I wanted to like this - I like Modiano - but the book itself has a weird habit of complaining that it exists, often statin ...more

Clear rating
Really good, interesting book whose structural ambitions are partly disguised by the directness of its prose. This is functionally two novellas and then a short transcript, (one that works a bit too hard to round off the novel). Part one, which I rea ...more

Stoner by John  Williams
Rate this book
Clear rating
An incredibly melancholy, wistful campus novel whose flurries of hope are always the perfect length - we root for Stoner, even knowing from the beginning where the story will end. There are incredible descriptions: marble stairs wearing down over 40 ...more

UPDATE: Here is my interview with Knausgaard on the book!: https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/b...

I'll write more toward the publication date, but this is a fascinating ending to my favorite series from the last few years. Like the party at the end
