Is it shit?
Best. Book. Ever.
is all character like fodyor dostoevsky that spill the Italian spaghetti
I'm looking for books with moral background, that may teach a lesson, that make you think, such as 1984, Animal Farm, Brand New World, Blindless... any recs?
The Familiar is probably going to be 27 volumes, about 800 pages each. This guy has either gone crazy, or become a hack. Really though, either way, it isn't good. A 20,000 page book? Even Proust would blush at that.
Become a hack? All his novels are just a bunch of magazine cut-outs and photos of doorstoppers with ~14 words per page about a quirky dude. If his first book didn't convince you he was a hack, I doubt his 28 other ones will.
Does anyone submit writing anywhere?
Most off the stuff I write is funny, I was wondering if there was anywhere good to submit things like that?
If I can, I'm going to write some more article or list type things and see if I can get it posted up on a humour website. I enjoy writing things that make people laugh, so getting it out into an audience would be great fun.
>Most off the stuff I write is funny
That's true, because your whole post is so funny and ironic. Asking on a humour website for a humour website, sheesh :-)
>I was wondering if there was anywhere good to submit things like that?
Have you heard of reddit? They have super humour, but sometimes it is quite nerdy.
>If I can...
Do you have writer's block? :-(
1) Seems like a good place to start.
2) What's with all the Reddit references recently?
3) I wouldn't normally write that kind of thing, but it seems to be a common format for websites
>1) Seems like a good place to start.
I don't know. Most of the posts on lit I don't understand, or they are just mean :(
>2) What's with all the Reddit references recently?
Oh, you don't know? Ah, I get it, you are a newcomer, too (:
Could you post some excerpts? I need a good laugh today :]
Honeydew, by Edith Perlman. I haven't read anything else she's written, but this was good stuff. Takes a while to get going, though. Lots of slice-of-life stories from a fictional American town, kinda like Margaret Atwood, but less depressing. Anyone else read her?
I haven't heard of her. Could you say some more about whom you would compare her to, what her style is, and what some other favorites of yours are (short story authors in particular) to help us get more of a sense of this author? Thanks
Guise help please..
I really love reading and i am studying literature as well but I also enjoy movies and tv shows a lot and i feel like i am neglecting my books when I watch tv...
Any recommendations appreciated

Balance. Just like the soap opera "One life to live" so are the days of our lives, like dust in the wind. Wild Stallions and so forth.
Just finished this, should I read Go set a Watchman? Also: thoughts about the book
What's the consensus on this guy?
I am a dirty sock, in a pile of clean socks
The sock i match with is clean, but I am dirty
I am a dirty, dirty sock.
Nobody will wear me, and because of me nobody will wear my pair
I am dirty but you can't clean me, I'm dirty beyond repair.
I was left out of the laundry, only by chance
A clean sock I would be if my owner took a second glance
No soap suds for me, no rinse and no spin
I'm a dirty sock and I belong in the bin
I just bought House of Leaves and so far, I'm loving it.
What an abomination of a trainwreck.
Do you guys know any other good, similair books?

If you want a article on the growing acceptance of transgender/queer/non-binary sexuality or fetishized sexual deviance, read Berlant and Warner's Sex In Public.
it ends with a scene of a man voluntarily being gagged by having milk poured down his throat in a sex show
Have there been any film adaptations of good books that didn't fuck up the story by making the love angle front and center/sticking one in? Pic related
On Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon - "I have sat and slept though this novel for five days and words would fail me if logorhoea were not so catching." and "It [Rocket] may have been of such heavy symbolic intent that it went under my head"
On The Decay of the Angel - "This is not writing, this is Barbara Cartland - and Barbara Cartland at least has the courage not to commit hara-kiri over it"
