Props on Consider the Lobsters, as I believe David Fosters Wallace was quite possibly one of the smartest human beings of the past few years.

Just read Michael Lewis' (Blind Side) first book Liar's Poker from his time at Salmon Brothers on the bond trading desk. Quick easy read but not nearly as fun as Monkey Business as far as stories on Wall Street go.

Next up is: Market Wizards: Interviews with Top Traders.


Iowatreat should read some Umberto Ecco.

3 words for iowatreat if he wants some Magical Realism: Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

100 Years of Solitude, Love In the Time of Cholera, Constancia & Other Stories of Virgins, etc.

Work your way up through Latin authors to the late Argentine Luis Borjes (Labyrinths) & Mexican Roberto Bolano (2666).

I'd define magic realism as different than surrealism, but Borges is a great writer and Bolano is a good one. If surrealism is the goal, the two authors I've read a lot of lately are Italo Calvino (Invisible Cities and Cosmicomics) and Haruki Murakami (Wind-Up Bird Chronicles and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World).

Just finished reading : The Long Price Quartet by Daniel Abraham. It's a bit of a slow read but it's definitely a really good Fantasy series with excellent world building. One of the only series I ever read that gets better with each books. The ideas and the way they are used are top notch. IMO, a must read for every fantasy reader.

You guys should all learn French just so you can read some Christian Mistral. The guy is a genius with words.

It's autofiction. It's mostly about the author's reactions to the death of a friend. Not as much a story as a journey through emotions, which Mistral seems to be able to regurgitate on a piece of paper with poetic, harsh beauty.

Are there any decent translations out there. I love me some great prose, but I'm not about to go learn french for one book.

I've been a huge Kem Nunn fan since Unassigned Territory that I read in 1988. I just read Tijuana Straits last yr, it has lots of San Diego surfing ambiance & lore in it too.

Nunn's a great prose stylist & he's been called the quintessential SoCal fictionalist after he wrote Pomona Queen. PQ is next on my Nunn Books To Read list.

Did you watch John From Cincinnati on HBO? Nunn was a consultant for the show and his novels are a clear influence on the characters. Was a genius show for the 12 episodes HBO allowed to run before canceling it because it wasn't Deadwood and people didn't know what the **** was going on.

Before reading The Eye of the World, someone warned me not to get invested in The Wheel of Time series. A year later I just finished book 11...I should have listened.

Just got the hardcopy in the mail, tearing into it now .

I'd read the Airships story collection chockfulla mini-masterpieces, the Capt. Maximus collection, & the novel Ray, this is his best stuff ever.

Hannah was Writer In Residence at the U. of Mississippi at Oxford, this is his last best stuff between 2 covers, he died last March, RIP.

Knowing He Was Not My Kind Yet I Followed & Dragged Fighting from His Tomb may be the 2 best Civil War stories ever written in the modern era, easily the best I've ever read.

Hannah was ******* magnificent!!!!!
