Have just begun Pynchon's AGAINST THE DAY. If the first 5 pages are any indication, the next 1080 should be a fair clam bake.
Niiice. First section is such a joyous intro to the world.
Just finished JR by William Gaddis which was genius, hilarious, difficult in one way and breezy in another. Still think I prefer The Recognitions tho. Reading Lives of Girls and Women by Alice Munro which is v solid. Some highlights from what I've read this year; Temple of the Golden Pavilion, Housekeeping, Call it Sleep, Cosmos by Gombrowicz. On the nonfiction side; Reconstruction by Eric Foner, City of Quartz, The Power Broker. On deck I got The General of the Dead Army, which I think will be the first Albanian book I've read. As well as A People's Tragedy: The Russian Revolution which I'm real excited to dive into.
I realized I haven't read any comics in awhile, although I'll pick up the new Chris Ware at some point natch.
