Patty | 28 comments Kind of depressing how few of these I still haven't read. On the other hand, I came across two items I hadn't heard of before while I was compiling this list, so that's cool.

I have no idea, really, what "X" is, it was listed as "Fiction: Primary School" on WorldCat. I'm going to have to see if I can hunt it down.

I also have no idea what "Has no kinsmen" is, but it was listed under poetry with two authors, so maybe it's like "There are no names for red," which is a book of poems by Chris Abani, with paintings by PE on facing pages.

MJ Nicholls (mjnicholls) | 211 comments I liked Erasure and Wounded by Everett. I'm not sure where to go next. I prefer the angry satirical side of his personality, any tips?

Patty | 28 comments Okay, that's bizarre. After further research, "X" is the spanish version of Erasure. Very strange that WorldCat has it filed under Primary School! Deleting it from the list. :)

"A history of the African-American people (proposed) by Strom Thurmond" is definetly angry and satirical, but it's also kind of surreal. It's incredibly funny.

Maybe I should reorganize the list by order of surrealness. I lean toward his more surreal stuff, myself.

Dan Wickett | 2 comments One more poetry collection:

Abstraktion Und Einfühlung

Another Fiction (novel):

The Water Cure


message 7: by Patty (new)

Patty | 28 comments Oooh! Thanks, don't know how I missed the Water Cure! I'll update the list. I think that the poetry title is the German version of There are no names for red, which I have already listed (under "other" since it isn't Everett's poetry.)

Abstraktion Und Einfuhlung is his poetry -- it's a collection from Akashic:
