This was awesome. I was disappointed in that it really does stop, almost abruptly, shortly after 9/11, but the amount of research and background that went into this book is pretty impressive.
Enjoyed this. At times her writing was a little too experimental for my taste, but at other times it's almost downright brilliant. It reminded me of some of those Wayside Stories books, only for messed up adults.
Definitely no Middlesex
, but I like his style nonetheless. Romances aren't my normal genre of choice.
I've read a ton of books since last summer. Too many to list. The best book I read in that time was Mailer's The Naked and The Dead
. Easily one of the most enjoyable reading experiences I've had and one of my favorite books in the past five years. It's long as hell, but worth it.
