Q4 Reading List

Not the greatest throughput. Too much NFL I’m afraid. The Gamepass app is just too good…

Thomas Pynchon: Bleeding Edge. Very clever.  

WIlliam Boyd: Solo. James Bond shares his cooking recipes. 
 
Michael Wex: Born to Kvetch. Really interesting.
 
Dave Eggers: The Circle. Maybe not his best work in purely literary terms but a fun read and an incredibly perceptive description of the Kool-Aid many of us are drinking every day. Must-read.
 
Don de Lillo: Cosmopolis. Didn’t expect to like it but I did. A lot.
 
Joau Ubaldo Ribeiro: Sargento Getulio. Rough stuff. Read at your own risk.
 
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. What can I say. A good read.
 
Jonathan Franzen: The Kraus Project. Kind of all over the place but in a good way. All sorts of good stuff in there. And Kehlmann in Hochform.
 
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. More of the same. Which is good.
 
James Salter: All That Is. So much fun, wonderfully old school. They don’t make ‘em like that anymore.
 
Daniel Kehlmann: F. Kehlmann in Hochform. 
 
Robert Evans: The Kid Stays in the Picture. Pretty interesting. Lots of stuff I didn’t know. Assuming that it’s true of course. 
 
Ian Fleming: Live and Let Die. A pleasant surprise. These books aren’t half as bad as I had expected them to be.
 
Nicholson Baker: The Anthologist.  Impressive. 
 
Ian Fleming: Moonraker. What a very pleasant surprise. The bridge scene alone is worth the price of admission.
 
Chris Hadfield: An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth. Important life lessons. Highly recommended.
