That's what my copy looks like. Could be why I hated it so much.

how's this? loved Housekeeping and will be doing Gilead sometime this year but I feel like I might not gel with her essays since they're so specific to areas of thought I've spent very limited time with 18th century stuff -- read a few Susan Howe books last year that went entirely over my head


I've read all of her essay collections, and they're wonderful if you're interested in liberal theology, American myths, religious critiques of capitalism, etc. or if you just want to read an absolutely beautiful essayist doing her thing. I've enjoyed "When I Was a Child I Read Books" the most of her collections. She also has a new one coming out in February.

Thank you so much for whoever recommended this (can't find it in search). Finishing this today and it's been so wonderful --- 4 or 5 sections completely knocked me out, and I'd absolutely read a book-length treatment of most of the topics he covers. I love Michael Twitty!

Halfway through this and it's massively impressive. Beautiful pen drawings and a very cool and moving story.

In awe of the work that went into it

It was a library book. We'll see how civic-minded this thief is when they make a trip to the book drop.

I'm reading Jane Eyre now—which I should have read sooner; see my Brontë mix-up however many pages back—and it's a Barnes & Noble Classics mass-market edition. I'm fairly certain I haven't read a mass-market paperback since the first time I read The Broom of the System, which was almost 20 years ago. I do not love the way these things feel in my hands.

Update: Jane Eyre is so good I don't mind having to read it in mass-market form.

sirens of titan is my fave vonnegut by quite a bit! i reread it every yr whenever i go on a plane by tradition now. i dont think anything has stuck me as much as the spaceship trying to get out of the cave and the spaceship just needed to be flipped over.

i just finished to live in one sitting by yu hua which i also really loved despite reading his other book two weeks ago. im glad i read chronicles of a blood merchant first, made the blood scenes even worse and you get a bit of overlap with how mao's cultural revolution is described by just the walls getting thicker and thicker with posters. cried about eight different times across the novel and im such a sucker for reflections across someones 'simple life'. think im going to go straight into reading brothers by him. really love the grim ordinary life humour ie comparing 'my-crooked-headed-son-in-law-' to the wife in chronicles of a blood merchant who just yells on her step.

i want to sit on my step and eat some watermelon in the heat but its night so i might do that tomorrow even tho the next yu hua novel doesn't deal with mao era farmers.
