BOOKS I READ THIS YEAR

After finishing university, I finally felt like I had the time to read again and it was wonderful.
  1. Infinite Jest - David Foster Wallace
    It took two tries, but holy shit, this is one magical novel.
  2. The Crying of Lot 49 - Thomas Pynchon
    My first Pynchon. I think I vaguely understood it. Likely not.
  3. Bleeding Edge - Thomas Pynchon
    A lot easier to digest, awesome, quick read.
  4. The Martian - Andy Weir
    Fun.
  5. Johnny Carson - Henry Bushkin
    I'm obsessed so this was awesome.
  6. A Man In Love - Karl Ove Knausgard
    Karl Ove Knausgard's first section of his massive novel. Depressing, but real.
  7. Without Feathers - Woody Allen
    Woody Allen is a master.
  8. The Broom of the System - David Foster Wallace
    Wallace says it made him cringe, but I loved it.
  9. Cat's Cradle - Kurt Vonnegut
    Easy, mind bending read.
  10. The Kid Stays in the Picture - Robert Evans
    Wow. Hollywood excess at its finest
  11. Top of the Rock - Warren Littlefield
    Oh how I miss the days of 'Must see TV'
  12. Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov
    Creepy, unsettling, but beautifully written.
  13. Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself - David Lipsky
    Amazing, insightful. I love DFW so I tore through this.
  14. Libra - Don Delillo
    So realistic, I kept forgetting I was reading fiction
  15. Love In The Time of Cholera - Gabriel Garcia Marquez
    Not bad, not my favorite. Truthfully, I read it because I love the film 'Serendipity'.
  16. Post Office - Charles Bukowski
    Wasn't a fan.
  17. I'm Dying Up Here - William Knoedelseder
    Very interesting, with a good through line and ending.
  18. True Story : Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa - Michael Finkel
    Heartbreaking
  19. The Late Shift - Bill Carter
    Fuck Leno, Hail Letterman, neither hold a candle to Carson.
