I've only ever read Baldwin's short works; "Sonny's Blues," "Notes of a Native Son," etc. All great. Never got into anything longer.

Gotcha. I'll look into those. Thanks.

It's probably ridiculous but I often find myself considering you and your thoughts while reading. "I wonder how ST feels about this" is in my head a lot.

And I'm blown away by Another Country. It's a remarkable book, so far. I think you'd have great insight into it.

Anyway...

I started listening to Catch 22 today. I've read it a few times, but the trailer gave me the urge to revisit it.

I only read non-fiction applicable to my life lately. Oh to be twenty five again.

Kind of/sort of throwing in the towel on the "Read 50 books in 2019" challenge, as I found I was stacking books in my to-read list that were short and could pad my stats instead of moving onto books that I actually have a drive to read. So many of those books that I've wanted to dive into (or to get back into) are long, and I'm looking forward to getting lost in those labyrinths. First up is a re-read, something I read in both 2009 and 2012, so I'm long overdue for a return:

Quote:
In this dazzling novel, the book that established his international reputation, Roberto Bolaño tells the story of two modern-day Quixotes--the last survivors of an underground literary movement, perhaps of literature itself--on a tragicomic quest through a darkening, entropic universe: our own. The Savage Detectives is an exuberant, raunchy, wildly inventive, and ambitious novel from one of the greatest Latin American authors of our age.

It's slow moving thus far, but extremely well-written. I'd been meaning to get to this one for a while. I've been on a fiction binge again after non-fiction for several months; I read Exit West by Moshin Hamid and Sing, Unburied Sing by Jesymn Ward which were both as great as advertised, but the one that surprised (and one I really just picked up on a whim) was Mr. Splitfoot by Samantha Hunt; a bizarre book with a surprisingly moving ending.

I got an email today that, for some reason, I hadn't received (or noticed) since I completed my dissertation in August: a summary of where it's been accessed from on ProQuest. In the past 30 days, it's been accessed at NYU, Cambridge, U of Chicago, OSU, Yale, and some universities in Europe (including Leipzig). That's pretty cool! In total, it's been downloaded 265 times in 36 countries. It may never actually land me a job, but it still gave me a good feeling today.

I could've sworn that I did, honestly, I should check my paperwork. No one was gonna publish that shit, so I don't care too too much.

Where can we view this document so as to properly critique it and you?
