Reading Update

Finished re-reading Thomas Pynchon’s “Inherent Vice” (too quickly) / finished “The Tale of Genji” by Murasaki Shikibu (not quickly at all) / finished “The Hole” by José Revueltas / finished Books 1 and 2 of Ahmad Faris al-Shidyaq’s “Leg Over Leg” / then my e-reader broke so let’s not talk about technology; needless to say I resolved the issue / currently re-reading “2666” by Roberto Bolaño because I need some go-for-broke-audacious apocalyptic poetics right now (why can’t any English-language writers do this so well?) / on deck are the last two books of al-Shidyaqs “Leg Over Leg”, my friend Maurice Carlos Ruffin’s new book “We Cast a Shadow”, probably a few more I’m forgetting, and a Pocket reading list that seems to grow faster every day
