The Heirs of Columbus by Gerald Vizenor, anything by Allison Bechdel, and a double hitter: Tree of Codes by Jonathan Safran Foer alongside The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schulz.
I don't think I've read it yet! Almost every book I read fulfills a certain need at a certain time. Books are usually my favorite when I'm reading them.
Infinite Jest. Every time I tell someone I've finished IJ and love it, they give me an accusatory look. I didn't read it to be hip/I don't think anyone would bother to finish it just to be "hip." The book entered my life at a really tumultuous time. I found a lot of comfort in the fact that I could return to it for months for hours at a time. It became a habit. I still miss it. [But that's probably the point!]
I'm a (very) recent college grad who just moved to Philadelphia. I work in the arts but haven't met very many people here. Apart from books, I enjoy e-literature, theater, and interdisciplinary art or intermedia art.
