I've been wanting to read Gravity's Rainbow for a while now, but I've never actually gotten around to it (although I could say that for a billion other books...there are just too many).

I'm tantalizingly close to the end of Grapes of Wrath right now. Oddly enough, I was never forced to read this in High School. One of my good friends who shares the same book taste as me declared it as her "first favorite book" and told me I had to read it.

Other than that I've mostly been on this obsessive Philip Roth kick. I seriously can't get over the end of American Pastoral.

Everyone who bought a copy of Rook needs to read Moby Dick alongside it.

That is all.

There's so much travel literature that would go well with Rook, but I just went back through my copy of The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym and it seems a particularly nice fit (especially when ).

Rather than reading, I have been writing while listening to Shearwater.

My present (2 years and counting) manuscript has been written almost entirely to the music of Palo Santo, Rooks, PJ Harvey's White Chalk and Manu Chao's Clandestino and La Radiolina.

It is an interesting mix. And if any of you are curious as to what happens to that mix when put together, filtered and then typed onto a macintosh you can see and excerpt at my blog (and any suggestions for how this monstrous manuscript might be helped will be welcomed).

I'm finishing up one book that I've loved and starting another that I'm devouring.

is formidable. She writes essays about some of the most significant psychological experiments of the 20th century. And she imbues these experiments with humanity. Really interesting project.

And I just started Lolita. I read it when I was a teenager, but now I'm reading it in the context of having just finished Moll Flanders - perfect!

It's totally accessible - it's really about the people behind these experiments more than the psychological findings.

If I did the link correctly, above, most of the book is available on-line.

I'm in the midst of organizing this literary event that will have authors who investigate a kind of "writerly" approach to science. Kimoko Hahn is reading and I've just asked Lauren Slater to come as well. I think one more author would be good. If anyone has ideas - let me know!

Random books:
David MItchell: Cloud Atlas and Ghostwritten
who you may have heard of

and, the new release La Medusa by Vanessa Place, who you probably have not heard of. It is an experimental work but do not be afraid, it is a book with a heart at its center. She's on book tour early Oct to NY, Philly, Cambridge and is worth catching if you are in those places.
