What Are You Reading?

Reading something phenomenal? Please share below! I’m always looking for new authors to fall in love with.

  1. Here are a few I’ve recently read: The Hangman’s Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch, The House Of Mirth by Edith Wharton (there is a movie version also with Gillian Anderson). I’m currently reading the second book in the Hunger Games, Catching Fire.

  2. Another one you might like is I Am Not Myself These Days
    by Josh Kilmer-Purcell. It’s a true story of a young gay man growing up in Oconomowoc WI and winds up in New York as a transvestite. The book is hilarious!!

  3. I always have time for Angela Carter’s short stories (collected in Burning Your Boats). Also, have you checked out Bruno Schulz? Only two of his three novels remain; I’ve read “Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass” and now I’m reading “Street of Crocodiles”. With “Sanatorium […]”, the imagery and metaphors are so hallucinatory that they almost supersede that which they reference. I believe “Sanatorium […]” is the sequel to “Street of Crocodiles”, but it made perfect sense reading it out of order.

    In poetry, I always return to Dylan Thomas, Pablo Neruda, Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, Ted Hughes’ “Crow”, and [very early] T.S. Elliot. I’m not well-versed in poetry, especially contemporary poets, but a close friend of mine, Anna Percy (http://mostlynocturnalscribbler.wordpress.com/) never ceases to amaze/surprise me with her work.

    • You have mentioned some of my favorite poets. Glad to see someone else enjoys the modernists as well 🙂 I’ll have to check out some of those other books you’ve mentioned.
