Note to self: when getting Nixonland
back from the library, start reading at Chapter 22, Tourniquet. Edit:
at Chapter 27, Cruelest Month.
A book I read in a day, but didn't like: Snuff
, by Chuck Fight-Club (he loves it when people call him that--be sure to keep that in mind if you ever go to a reading or see him at the airport or whatever). Three things about it that aren't as clever as I suspect Chuck thinks they are: lots of old-Hollywood trivia. Lots of parodic titles to imaginary porno movies. Lots of slang terms for men.
A book I started reading yesterday, and like a lot: Smoked
, by Patrick Quinlan. Dark, blackly comic thriller, with more accurate bomb-making instructions than Still Life With Woodpecker
. And there's a librarian in it.
