    The Road is maybe his most minimalist. Big love for outer dark too. Must read child of god again, as it was the first of his I found and I think I missed a lot.

    Read Amis's book about Stalin again, because I'd watched 'Death of Stalin' and it was the only book on Stalin I had to hand, so I thought I'd skim through it and ended up reading it again. It's pretty good, almost reads like a blueprint for 'The Death of Stalin''s black comic take on Stalinism, with lots of stunning examples of Bolshevik cruelty and hypocrisy. Unbelievable, the suffering Russians (not to mention Ukranians, Poles, etc.) went through.

    Not having read even half of what he's written, I'd still wage that PP. 206-207 are the two most embarrassing pages Amis ever had published. Although maybe he took even more of a nosedive with all his post 9/11 'horrorism' stuff.

    Tropic of Capricorn, Miller

    He can write, but for every great passage about staggering around New York or his father finding God there's several tedious pages of him describing genitals.

    Not read that, but I have read Tropic Of Cancer. I imagine it's much the same, only in Paris.

    I'm trying to finish a book on Lucha Libre this weekend and last week I went through the Xenofeminism Manifesto.
