BOOKS I READ IN 2015

May have left a few out... my 2014 piles of books have seeped into my 2015 piles.
  1. Day of the Locust - Nathaniel West
  2. Cronacas - Clarice Lispector
  3. Man in the Holocene - Max Frisch
  4. Infinite Jest - DFW
    Actually I have a few footnotes to finish up but I got distracted by my pile of books. Took me about 2.5 months to read.
  5. The Last Interview: DFW
  6. The Last Interview: Jorge Luis Borges
    Disappointing
  7. Autobiography of Red - Anne Carson
    Beautiful
  8. Invectives - Petrarch
    1st essay only so far, kinda repetitive.
  9. Glass essay - Anne Carson
  10. On Photography - Susan Sontag
  11. The Pale King - DFW
    (Yes, I went through a DFW phase starting in late 2014. Have read all of his published work now.)
  12. Reykjavik 101
  13. Apex Hides the Hurt - Colson Whitehead
  14. Selected poems of Paul Celan
  15. Culture & Value - Wittgenstein
  16. The Painter of Modern Life - Baudelaire
  17. Picture of Dorian Grey - Oscar Wilde
  18. The Novices of Sais - Novalis
  19. This craft of Verse - Borges
  20. My Secret Book - Petrarch
    Relatable, centuries later
  21. The Noble Hustle- Colson Whitehead
  22. Consider the Lobster - DFW
    The best collection of DFW essays
  23. Both Flesh & Not - DFW
  24. Oblivion - DFW
  25. Professor Borges
    Transcripts of Borges' lectures. Possibly my favorite book I read this year.
  26. Niels Lyhne - Jens Peter Jacobsen
    1/2 way through currently. Recommended by Rilke in his "Letters to a young Poet".
