I've recommended this before, but if you are buying books, I recommend anything by John Fante

you should read jonathan strange and mr. norrell by Susanna Clark if you are into the harry potter books, it is about two magicians in the 1800's reviving magic in England, it's a really fun book, and it blends the story with history, they are used by the government in the war with France

some of my favourite books:

dostoevsky - the idiot
bukowski - post office
conrad - heart of darkness
cocteau - the miscreant
suskind - perfume (forget that godawful movie)

and if you're running out of time, anything by gogol, luis borges, kafka and e.t.a. hoffman.

the only writer i'd read more of off that list is bukowski and that's just because i love the movie 'barfly.'

i forgot to add a book, so i added it up there. see if you can find it!

i just watched barfly the other day that is a really good movie there's supposed to be a new documentary about him soon

"I hate plants"

also if you like bukowski again you'd like john fante since bukowski basically got his writing style from john fante and was bukowskis favorite writer.

Andy: And check this out - I found this movie called "Barfully!"
Posey: Andy, I think that movie is actually called "BarFLY!"
Andy: Not 'barfully' like the adjective?
Kevin: 'Barfully' is not a word, and if it were, it would be an adverb, as in 'the sewage oozed barfully.'

ahh I miss mission hill

i added 3 more so nyah. i'll add the dubliners by james joyce in a couple of days (hopefully). then i think i'll be attacking portrait of an artist as a young man just for the hay of it.

add the road to los angeles by john fante. He is very easy to read, much like Kurt Vonnegut. I read his book overnight.

i read that again yesterday it's a good book about LIFE. I think him and Dostoevsky are some of the most realistic writers I have ever read. Very few other writers can write believable characters, that seem to be real and have real psychologies. Probably both of these writers are so realistic because they write about themselves.
Right now I'm reading Kafka's the trial and he's so fucking boring i hate him so far why do people like him? It is an intriguing book but still irritating and if I saw kafka writing this book i would punch him in the face.

alright the first quarter or third of the trial is shit. I don't know if it's because I have a bad translation or what, but the common dialogue is so horrible. Now that I'm almost done with it, it has gotten better, and it strikes me as hilarious that all the courts are in attics when this guy talks to him he says that there's scarcely an attic in town that doesn't have a court of inquiry in it.

kahl, i shall read this book that you suggest, but you have to do me a favor:

read either infinite jest by david foster wallace, or beloved by toni morrison. those are 2 of my all time faves.

it'll be like we traded smartsies.

awesome. I'll check out infinite jest because toni morrison's writing style reminds me of children's books.
i think you'll probably like it. Hopefully I'm not suggesting something that you will take as utter shit :o
