My Struggle by Karl Ove Knausgård
Rate this book
Clear rating
It's hard to talk about a 1148-page book that's only one of six (here are my reviews of Books One, Two, Three, Four, and Five). Book Six, the final installment, is unlike the others, unlike anything I've ever read, and as I read it there was nothing ...more

Summer by Karl Ove Knausgård

Clear rating
A hybrid of the approaches in Autumn, Winter, and Spring. Diary and meditations. Plus something new: a point-of-view shift in the next sentence, always announced in advance like that, from KOK's typical first-person (consistent and reliable narrator/ ...more

Superlative slant autobiography in the form of a few dozen "status updates," short associative essays on no particular topic, or that discover their topic via association, sometimes like ecstatic inventories of everything in the author's life, presen ...more

Limonov by Emmanuel Carrère

A unique first-person biography that covers exactly what the subtitle says it’s about. A sort of modern picaresque about a pesky, punker Russian poet who believes he's destined for greatness but for the most part finds himself down and out. About com ...more

Hunger by Roxane Gay

Read this in two sittings on a single day. Short chapters, airily formatted, larger text. Occasionally affective and perception shifting. As I read sitting at two public pools in South Philadelphia (someone vomited at the first pool so we had to find ...more

All Netflix documentaries are about obsessives -- this one just happens to be in print form. It's a wonderfully well-written, often gripping, more than sufficiently informative, and ultimately moving literary biopic about Tim Samaras, a tornado obses ...more

Kudos by Rachel Cusk

Started wonderfully. I kept saying "this is great" aloud as I read the parts about the countess in Italy and her writer's retreat (I'm 95% sure I know who it's based on). Loved the part with the editor talking about successful novelists who've figure ...more

This Darkness Got To Give
by Dave Housley (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book

Ingenious mash-up of gumshoe procedural + vampire thriller + some obscure governmental MK Ultra psych-experiment conspiracy stuff, mostly set in end-stage Grateful Dead show parking lots. The Undead meets the Dead . . . Would've been really easy for ...more

The Avengers by Rich Cohen

A+++ story of resistance, revenge, and reconsideration that everyone should read. Straightforward, super-dramatic, moving, vivid, semi-inspiring retelling of the Nazi occupation of Vilna (which I've always known as Vilnius, the largest city of Lithua ...more
