Recommendations? Comments on any of the above? I love book talk.
Travesty by John Hawkes.
Thanks, DP! I’ll check it out. Hope all is well.
Kevin Wilson’s “Tunneling to the Center of the Earth”
Donald Ray Pollock’s “Knockemstiff”
Both incredible, both fuel my writing ambitions!
Thanks, Chris — great titles. Are you at all a Neil Gaiman fan? A few people have mentioned him to me recently.
I was originally a NG comic fan back in “the day”. Only read a few of his books, ‘Good Omens” that he co-authored with Terry Pratchett. Excellent book- especially if you’re a Douglas Adams fan in need of a fix. Also “Anansi Boys”- which was just OK for me, plot/characters were fairly standard. I hear “The Graveyard Book” and “American Gods” are great though. They are on the short list to read.
I checked out your website and found that you are currently reading 2666.
I read it a couple of months ago, while taking a Gotham Course.
Roberto Bolaño became a major inspiration for my writing life.
2666 is really his Opus Magnum.
Glad to discuss the book whenever you want.
Greetings, Jose — thanks for coming by. I thought of you as I read “Last Evenings on Earth,” which was just stunning, I thought. Am not yet halfway through 2666 but will touch base once I’m done.

“An Armful of Warm Girl” W.M. Spackman

“Missionary Stew” Ross Thomas
Maybe this is obvious, but how do you make such elegant grids of the books you’ve read and their Goodreads links? I’d love to do something similar. I know how to link to something in a post, but the cover images are lovely here; how did you do that?
