This is basically how I recommend books to friends… Effective? Maybe.
- Pan, by Knut Hamsun. A wild existential crisis. The narrator is living in the woods of Norway, maybe 1890’s. Going insane with every passing day while falling in love with a Lords daughter. Dark, funny, beyond its time. Norwegian authors are still years ahead.
- Also, i’m really into Matthew Quick right now. He authored the Silver Linings Playbook and each and every novel follow a quirky set of people.
- If you really want to fall off the deep end start Knausgaard’s series “My Struggle.”Six, dense as hell books that have driven me insane in all the right ways.
What are you reading right now?
