I loved this book! It felt like old-school Stephen King, who hasn't been around for a long, long time. Clean prose, creepy story, great pacing. My old "friend" is back in full force with this one.

So much better than the crappy new adaptation. The social themes especially the tale of The Black Spot and white supremacists in Derry really stood out to me this time.

This book is totally useless. It's basically a re-counting of various tidbits about orchids through history, though not very well written and extremely boring. Charlie Kaufman did an amazing job adapting this blah story into a truly remarkable film.

“there's a part in the essay that kind of does this academic "Let's unpack the idea of Lynchian and what Lynchian means is something about the unbelievably grotesque existing in a kind of union with the unbelievably banal," and then it gives a series of scenarios about what -- what is and what isn't Lynchian. Jeffrey Dahmer was borderline Lynchian...what was Lynchian was having the actual food products next to the disembodied bits of the corpse. I guess the big one is, you know, a regular domestic murder is not Lynchian. But if the man -- if the police come to the scene and see the man standing over the body and the woman -- let's see, the woman's '50s bouffant is undisturbed and the man and the cops have this conversation about the fact that the man killed the woman because she persistently refused to buy, say, for instance, Jif peanut butter rather than Skippy, and how very, very important that is, and if the cops found themselves somehow agreeing that there were major differences be ...more David Foster Wallace
