with all the Murakami talk on the board and after watching Burning, plus trying really hard to get into shape lately, I started What I Talk About When I Talk About Running and it is extremely pleasant

finally finished this past weekend, took me almost a year to get through it and ended up skimming a lot of the last few chapters anyway. mixed bag of theory and I haven't read Bourriaud which made things a lot more frustrating. but some good morsels in here overall.

bourriaud gets slammed a lot but i found his Relational Aesthetics to be kinda cool, surprisingly influential and a breeze to read, should be easy to find secondhand

speaking of wittgenstein, i found a nice hardback edition w/ cover of the tractatus from the early 60s behind the counter at a thrift shop yesterday. i asked to look at it then had the lady hold it while i looked around and when i came back to buy it, the damned person sold it to some other dude who noticed it on the counter while checking out! god effing damn it

read this myself about 6 months ago. I loved it, but read Dancer from the Dance if you want another AMAZING gay novel.

I'm almost done. I've enjoyed it quite a bit. Hoping Let It Come Down is better to me because I prefer Tangier to Africa. We'll see.

When I went to Morocco it was such a trip to look out the plane window and think "That's AFRICA!" A place I never figured I'd be in my life

Disappointed in this. Some fine writing and i quite liked the cult section and the description of the videosToggle Spoiler but didn't feel like everything came together plot wise. Plus, and I know he's quite a fine fellow, Jeremy is a huge charisma vacuum. Also, the college kids and their oh so perfect parents in the last part are sickening. Loved his debut though and I'll read his next one

just finished

Image

i thought it was great, thematically dense and formally interesting but at the same time quite a direct and immersive experience - i think the talk about it being "challenging", especially from the booker judges, is kinda misdirected in a lot of ways (by comparison with 'lincoln in the bardo', for instance). the only thing that i think might cause people to switch off is that it's there's not much narrative momentum.

now on to

Image

i was only dimly aware of gass but i had to read this as soon as i saw a synopsis - i'm ~120 pages in and yeah, it's really something

rereading confirms this as an all time favorite for me. early responses to this were incredibly obtuse.

and this book was made for reading once while waiting in a laundromat and never reading again but i liked it!
