At times the language/vibe of the book reminds me of a horror novel because he loathes tennis so much.

Big props to Andre for writing this himself and not getting a ghost writer....it is a really smooth and enjoyable read.

I'm on page 750.

Can't wait for the HBO series that King said is in the works.

What is it? Sci-Fi? Horror? What?

I haven't read The Magus in years but I do remember really liking it at the time (which would've been about twenty odd years ago). Probably best that I leave it at that. Maybe if I read it again now I'd feel different.

i have spent months reading blogs that reference things i don't understand, at a loss as to which direction in philosophy to start in, i had a period were i thought i needed to work at hegel then marx but now i'm not so drawn to that area. i tried to have a go at badiou's theoretical writings but lack the proper conceptual grounding. when i have the net back i may try again since i can google at it to see if it opens up more. but at the moment i am very, very, interested in agamben/tiqqun and the points at which they converge. that, and gaining some sort of basic idea about what the hell speculative realism is all about. i've sustained myself thusfar on zizek and now have some slight insight into deleuze and a faint idea about what lacan was on about, altho i fear delving into him now when i have so much else to do. so first task is to get grounded in agamben and find the part of his work i have been obsessed with after reading an excerpt of on a blog and then forgetting.

I'm not qualified in any of this but I suppose a lot of the problems that come from starting with writers like Deleuze, Badiou, Zizek, etc, is that they all assume that their readers have an understanding of earlier more foundational writers and traditions. Glice, PBradley and some others here would be able to offer some good advice on that topic, although I imagine the best place to start would be with the Greeks.

I am really enjoying Tropic of Cancer. So much different reading it now compared to at 23. God, what a funny fuck Miller was!

Savoring the book, in fact. Like a long and languid fuck.

Yes. Study up on your literary history.

Oh, I get it. You were making a joke.

Russell's 'A history of Western Philosophy' is a good place to start. I think, in fairness, you can get away with not reading Plato. I think I may be repeating myself here, but a couple of 'introducing Lacan/ Hegel/ continental philosophy/ psychoanalysis' books should see you right. I really wouldn't bother with Hegel. As someone's who's read him a few times I honestly feel I'm better off reading secondary texts on him than the text itself. Same with Descartes and countless others, as it happens.

I had an argument about Agemben this evening. Fucking teleology can fuck the cunt off in my book..

I've not read that but I've never known anyone to actually like it, so I'm happy leaving it on the shelf.
