Catie Currie | 8 comments Hello!
I have always really loved books with unreliable narration and I recently discovered I like surrealism as well. I really love finishing a book and just feeling like someone ripped the carpet out from under me (weird? Maybe haha) or suddenly needing to reread through crucial parts now that I know the ending. Any suggestions?

I really loved Kazuo Ishiguro for unreliable narration, particularly A Pale View of Hills. I also liked Emma in the Night, The Turn of the Screw and, at least the idea behind I Let You Go, if not the actual writing.
For surrealism, my absolute favorite author is Aimee Bender, in particular, her short story collection: The Color Master: Stories.

Thank you!
