Probably two of the worst books to get into Deleuze with but I'm not going to make a counter-recommendation so good luck.

Because the content of the books are separate from his own thought, or because would be a confusing starting point?

I'm sure you'll find a Youtube video to help you--there's even that British dipshit who claims to offer "based Deleuze"

He's not British, but he is hilariously dumb.

Next on my feel-good stories list:

Quote:
Minor Detail begins during the summer of 1949, one year after the war that the Palestinians mourn as the Nakba—the catastrophe that led to the displacement and exile of some 700,000 people—and the Israelis celebrate as the War of Independence. Israeli soldiers murder an encampment of Bedouin in the Negev desert, and among their victims they capture a Palestinian teenager and they rape her, kill her, and bury her in the sand.

Many years later, in the near-present day, a young woman in Ramallah tries to uncover some of the details surrounding this particular rape and murder, and becomes fascinated to the point of obsession, not only because of the nature of the crime, but because it was committed exactly twenty-five years to the day before she was born. Adania Shibli masterfully overlays these two translucent narratives of exactly the same length to evoke a present forever haunted by the past.

For sure. I have something on-deck already (I'm in the middle of another novel). So, my plan is for this to be the thing I read after the next thing I've committed to already. It might be a few weeks but I'll definitely let you know what I think of it.

Quote:
An expatriate professor, Vega, returns from exile in Canada to El Salvador for his mother’s funeral. A sensitive idealist and an aggrieved motor mouth, he sits at a bar with the author, Castellanos Moya, from five to seven in the evening, telling his tale and ranting against everything his country has to offer. Written in a single paragraph and alive with a fury as astringent as the wrath of Thomas Bernhard, Revulsion was first published in 1997 and earned its author death threats. Roberto Bolaño called Revulsion Castellanos Moya’s darkest book and perhaps his best: “A parody of certain works by Bernhard and the kind of book that makes you laugh out loud.”
