One of my favourite books, definitely worth checking out.
The writing style for me was a perfect balance between raw incisiveness and dreamy poetics. Like a blend of some of the best features of Céline and Pessoa. As expected from that, it's profound and hilariously funny at the same time.
Style aside, I love Miller's project of the redefinition and realisation of a new heroism for the modern age. I love his talent for seeking out the very dregs of life and conquering everything mean...

are writers losers who don't get laid ?
Is this the lite vanilla anime version of Gravity's Rainbow?
The world explodes if the guy get's a boner, conspiracy, bizarre humour, medium's shit, etc.
Give me a topic and I will write you a 100 word essay inspired by it.
What language(s) should one learn to be exposed to the most valuable literature? I'm starting to get overwhelmed how much I need to read can only be through trans*lation
sigh why do we have to have these stupid fucking threads every day. you said it yourself, OP: there's an "overwhelming" fucklot of shit in not English.
my advice? learn Greek and Latin. (but you can make a case for basically any language, which is why your question is dumb af.)
I'm looking for books similar to The Girls by emma cline and girls on fire by Robin (can't remember the last name). I can't put my finger on what exactly it is I'm looking for; maybe something like fucked up romances. I guess I'm looking for books that are haunting and will resonate after I read them
Any good book suggestions about the history of war between the west (America) and the middle east?

Hi /lit/, I was wondering who your favorite Queer writers of color are. I really like Roxane Gay, James Baldwin, and Audre Lorde, but they are all qpoc 101. Are there any more obscure writers that you'd recommend? Better still if they are female or transfemale.
Roxanne Gay is considered to be "problematic" by many feminists because she can't get beyond the past views of gender when discussing the topic. ie her essay "Bad Feminist" entirely hinges on the idea that she is a bad feminist not for actually supporting the patriarchy or the like, but because she likes "girly" things.
I'm looking for recent horror fiction that is good. Please, decent suggestions.
I don't get it.

let's not do these things during the summer.
it's gonna turn into a vote and the summerfags from reddit and tumblr are going to sway the votes and next thing you know that green ball shit from Hitchhikers Guide to Faggotry is going to be the new sticky image.
Have you read any homo lit?
I love homolit, especially the older stuff. Back when sodomy and other fun stuff was illegal, authors had rely on subtlety and allusion to get their point across, which resulted in some truly rich literature.
The sad paradox of modern gay lit is that the openness towards homosexuality has allowed writers to produce work with lower standards. Good news is that the smut's never been better.
yes, A Single Man and Mrs. Dalloway are my favorites, what is with this barrage of sjw-undertoned threads tonight?
I feel like /lit/ is under the scrutiny of someine looking for reasons to complain

Why is online book piracy so behind the times?
Why aren't people racing to upload/download the latest releases?
