Jimmy and 15 other people liked MJ Nicholls's review of EEG: A Novel:
EEG by Daša Drndić
"The textbook definition of “sprawling”, Croatian novelist Daša Drndić’s swansong is a monumental novel mixing travelogue, impassioned testaments to the war dead, genealogical evacuation (filtered through a male narrator, for an unknown reason), ch..." Read more of this review »
Jimmy made a comment on M. Sarki’s review of Naïve. Super
Naïve. Super by Erlend Loe
" Yeah I know, what a ray of light he would be. I'll def check this author out as well. "
Naïve. Super by Erlend Loe

Jimmy and 6 other people liked M. Sarki's review of Naïve. Super:
Naïve. Super by Erlend Loe

A refreshing look at a young man from Norway trying to make sense of his life and attempting to find meaning in it. Perhaps the narrator is a bit too serious or obsessive in his assessments over the purpose..." Read more of this review »
Jimmy and 10 other people liked Nate D's review of Holy Smoke:
Holy Smoke by Fanny Howe
"A tersely fragmented experimental political thriller from the disillusioned wreckage of 60s radicalism, roving from Cuba to the NYC underground, to the wilds of Canada. This is a novel about what is left after ideals collapse and one is left to so..." Read more of this review »

Marilynne Robinson
“I have spent my life watching, not to see beyond the world, merely to see, great mystery, what is plainly before my eyes. I think the concept of transcendence is based on a misreading of creation. With all respect to heaven, the scene of the miracle is here, among us. The eternal as an idea is much less preposterous than time, and this very fact should seize our attention.”
Marilynne Robinson, The Death of Adam: Essays on Modern Thought

Franz Kafka
“I write differently from what I speak, I speak differently from what I think, I think differently from the way I ought to think, and so it all proceeds into deepest darkness.”
Franz Kafka

Robert Musil
“One must conform to the baseness of an age or become neurotic.”
Robert Musil

Ludwig Wittgenstein
“I am sitting with a philosopher in the garden; he says again and again 'I know that that’s a tree', pointing to a tree that is near us. Someone else arrives and hears this, and I tell him: 'This fellow isn’t insane. We are only doing philosophy.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein, On Certainty

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, First Part
