Finished “Berlin Alexanderplatz” by Alfred Döblin / Finished re-reading “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” by Hunter S. Thompson (Was the American Dream ever alive? Can we trust the sober to answer that question any more intelligently than the blitzed?) / Finished “Cane” by Jean Toomer (wow!) / On deck is a re-read of “Between Parenthesis” by Roberto Bolaño / Then “Barracoon” by Zora Neale Hurston / “The Problems of Philosophy” by Bertrand Russell / Following that with some other book I can find on the Gutenberg project, maybe something historical, or not western, provided I can find a translation of it without a blatant 19th century eurocentric/colonialist bias. Trying to keep this month’s budget intact, etc.
