Karl Ove Knausgaard - 'My Struggle pt. 1' (Been really bigged up but I'm not bowled over thus far. What's been called 'searing honesty' just comes across as pretty boring and not particularly well-written thus far, I'll try and keep going though.)
I get the impression it's a bit like a very British poor man's Pynchon, like Alan Partridge does Pynchon or something.
Currently reading The Savage Detectives; so far, so good.
Loved Lispector's 'The Passion According to G.H.', and also - obviously different, but not a million miles away in spirit - Helena Parente Cunha's 'Woman Between Mirrors'.
yeah, still here and with a baby on the way so i guess i´m here for good!
not heard of any of your suggestions, will investigate thanks
I was obsessed with 'The Passion...', I started a hangout to discuss all the references to continental philosophy and Lacan and stuff. Loads of excellent gender comments in the book too. I can add you to the hangout if you wish.
