I'm not sure, actually. I've never read any of his work. What would be a good place to start?
i've only read "Eagle or Sun?" and his short book on Sade. "Eagle or Sun?" is a collection of prose poems and I really enjoyed it. i've also flipped at random through a big selected or collected poems anthology in the library and loved a lot of it, but that's not a very helpful recommendation haha.

I'd never heard of it, but from the summaries it sounds intriguing. Would you recommend it?
i thought ishmael was corny bullshit but i hate primitivism in general so take that with a grain of salt
advise to take two salt grains as I'm really into primitivism (although I'll add that I'm way more anticivilization than pro primitivist).

So yeah read Ishmael.


read Nadja by Andre Breton; surrealist romance novel or something. Was short and I want to read it again.

Currenlty on The Devils of Loudon by Aldous Huxley.

Nadja is great, read bretons mad love or aragons paris peasant if you like that stuff (the more ecstatic / joyous side of surrealism)

I reread Nadja aloud to myself & twas good.

also finished up The Devils of Loudon. takes a bit to pick up on the actual events that led to Urbain Grandier burnt for witchcraft, but good insights into the historical-psychological conditions at that time. Grandier martyred hard.

Just began (by way of link jliat posted) The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Physics by Julian Barbour. just 20 pgs in & I'm stoked.
"what's time?" has been one of those questions that i can always enjoy reading/discussing/thinking.

Last book finished was Stephen King's "Insomnia"
Pretty good. Didn't regret reading it. Nothing near his best (IT).

Currently reading Richard Bachman's "The Regulators"
Yes i know RB is SK's alternate pen-name.
Halfway through and it is pretty badass. I only checked it out like a week ago and most of my reading time was over the weekend while the boy was watching some kid show that doesn't interest me.

read half a book by Paul Bowles called "Points In Time" on the bus today

weird, really short folkloric sketches of Moroccan life, mostly related to piracy torture etc. but some of the sections are just like two paragraphs describing a mirage or location etc that are just sick as hell, it's very close to prose poetry for the most part with very short narratives interspersed

i'm glad this is the first thing of his i read it rules

Rimbaud. And lots of RJ Myato.

The combination is electrifying.

bump for BLACK SPRING by Henry Miller

This part reminded me of a noise show
