I have been finishing with some other reading commitments before the "big book" campaign will begin. However, a few more books have been added to the pile. "Women and Men" and "Under the Volcano" arrived a little after the rest of the stack from the first big-book post:
While I was especially exited about "Women and Men" and "The Recognitions," I recently found out about a brand-new megabook by a younger fellow from Chicago who is getting compared to David Foster Wallace. I haven't started to read it yet, but it'll be the next book I start. Check out the beautiful design work on "The Instructions" by Adam Levin:
Kudos to McSweeney's for this amazing design. But I suppose I'd expect nothing less from any company associated with another great writer of both fiction and nonfiction, Dave Eggers.
Now that I'm determined to read big novels called Instructions and Recognitions, perhaps I should make sure to read another book I've meant to attack but haven't read yet, Franzen's "The Corrections."
So much reading to do...
