  1. Depressing bunch of books. Lighten up be­tween by read­ing Richard Russo’s ‘Straight Man’.
    I would stay away from ‘The Corrections’. Read it and want­ed to throw it across the room. Depressing book about dys­func­tion­al sib­lings and a 50’s era mar­riage. Not a fun read, may be well writ­ten, but who cares when it makes you feel so damned aw­ful read­ing it?
    Randomly surfed your way. Good luck on that list.

  2. Yeah, read on­ly hap­py books, watch hap­py movies, lis­ten to hap­py mu­sic, talk to hap­py peo­ple, think hap­py things. Jesus Christ, now I’m an­gry.

    Anyway: Space Merchants. A pos­si­ble ad­di­tion, un­less you’ve al­ready read it. And for the love of God, read The Corrections, but maybe not be­fore A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius.
