Summer Many Things Happen

Dept. of Speculation / Jenny Offill



“Dear Ms. Ainsley” / Joel Streicker (Great Lakes Review)

The Adventures of Augie March / Saul Bellow
I’m almost done with this. I feel like Bellow mastered the art of making quick transitions. Well, “mastered the art” should be invented the art. It reminds me of barroom conversations from too intelligent drinkers.


Victory / Joseph Conrad

The Walk / Robert Walser, translated by Susan Bernofsky and Christopher Middleton

The Tsar of Love and Techno / Anthony Marra

Котлован Андрея Платонова
Наконец-то, я вернулся. Ой такой хороший освежающий романчик. Особенно такие кафкаеские вопросы насчет отвлечения на работе…


The Lazarus Project / Aleksandr Hemon
Hemon bares his struggles in his work. There’s something very endearing about this.
