Purchased recently/ to be reveiwed soon

Still working through The Recognitions (should have a "reflection" by the end of the weekend)

Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust. Third volume of the seminal and interminable work of modern fiction (will not be reviewing this)

Godel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas Hofstadter. Not sure what to expect. Non fiction, scientific, very highly regarded. (will probably not be reviewing this)

The Late Works of Margret Kroftis by Mark Gluth. "Little House on the Bowery" selection. "Daydreamy" by a writer from Bellingham.

Satantango by Laszlo Krasznahorkai. Wandering, apocalyptic work which launched this Hungarian writer to a certain stardom. Hoping to read it then follow up with watching the (seven hour) screen adaptation by Bella Tarr.

Chromos by Felipe Alfau. Considered a forerunner to all experimental and maximalist writing of the 20th century. From the Dalkey Archive.

Also hope to have another little fiction piece up here soon.

Also please! If you read this and have suggestions for books to review or would like me to review your book: please let me know! I would love to do it!
