Ok, so I picked up Infernal Devices on my Kindle and I have to say it's not a very compelling read thus far. Over half way through and still waiting for the story to start. not a good sign!

Nice choice. Are you a fan of the beats in general, or just Burroughs?

have you read "Visions of Cody" by Kerouac? now that's a hard read. he goes on and on without any paragraphs(typical Kerouac high on benzedrine). still haven't finished that book yet.

the last couple of chapters in "On the Road" where they go to mexico is some of my favorite writings. the Desolation Peak chapters in the "Dharma Bums" is beautifully written too. i just read those over and over sometimes.

our library doesn't carry Burroughs, so i have to go to the local college library to find him.

I am a big beat fan and have been since my ninth grade lit teacher read excerpts of HOWL in class (kind of a risky move, really). I've read everything I've been able to get my hands on. Ginsberg has always been my favorite, but I'm with you on Dharma Bums and OTR.

Have you read Go by John Clellon Holmes? If not, you should check it out.

Oyasumi Punpun. A story of a certain guy's life and it starts off when he's young like First grade or somethin' and progresses. 110 Chapters in, he is now 20 years old. Basically fell in love and never really fell out and the person keeps coming in and out of his life.


Yeah...depression and life happens and shit, I'm really hooked. Inio Asano's manga's are not goofy(not really) or anything but just have the sad, happy, funny, and angry parts of life. Every release of his has actually made me feel. I acutally get a bit depressed after reading a voume of this specific manga.

Pincher Martin. Wm Golding. So/so. It has a pretty nice hallucinatory intro, but now appears to be into a more standard castaway story...

Months now of pretty consistent steampunk immersion. Read some GREAT stuff (The Difference Engine), some so-so stuff (Infernal Devices) and some utter crap (Boneshaker, Chronological Man). No expert yet, but I expect this book to be a game-changer and a soon-to-be classic.

Just a first impression, though.

TAZ is a classic. i should read it again. however i think that Bey's problem is if i remember correctly is that he puts too much emphasis on these pockets of autonomy that can found within dominant society rather than trying to break down said oppressive society.

I got talked into reading Flannery O'Conner by an acquaintance. Got one with 3 short novels in it, started with Wise Blood, it's pretty good. She's got a nice terse descriptive style...

Absolutely nothing. I can't decide what to read. Too many choices.
