The Books I Suggest You Read

A. Paul "paulie"
The list author says: "this is the stuff i keep referring to throughout life...perhaps that establishes me as an arrested sort of progress through a territory that offers grander insights. for what it's worth - i'm still reading..."
It Happened in Boston? (20th Century Rediscoveries)
It Happened in Boston? (20th Century Rediscoveries)
"a fine artist who paints who paints himself into an oblivion of greatness.  perhaps the most gratifying and peculiar fictional work on a career as a creative that i've ever read."
The Sandman
The Sandman
"the life and times of a murderer, in the inventive and Python-esque fiction of Miles Gibson. haunting, grisly, comic, and whimsical."
The sugar factory
The sugar factory
"part Catcher in the Rye, part Harmony Korine - reading this as a pre-teen inspired me to buy my own threaded bolt."
The Scarlet Ibis: The Collection of Wonder (Creative Short Stories)
The Scarlet Ibis: The Collection of Wonder (Creative Short Stories)
"one of the darkest, bleakest tales of youth to spring from so few pages - reads like the saddest David Gordon Green film we have yet to see."
Henry and the Clubhouse (Henry Huggins)
Henry and the Clubhouse (Henry Huggins)
"it was the tortured, hangdog face of Henry on an early edition of this timepiece that sold me on the entire series - which takes you through the Beezus & Ramona stuff and never falters as vintage melancholia."
A Taste of Blackberries
A Taste of Blackberries
"another unhappy great in the elementary school canon: precocious best friend of narrator dies in tragic simplicity, and so goes life..."
The Geranium On The Windowsill Just Died But Teacher You Went Right On
The Geranium On The Windowsill Just Died But Teacher You Went Right On
"i was probably too young for this one (it's alongside Harlin-Quist stuff in the effort to bring morbid hopelessness into "children's books") but i can't forget it, ever. surreal, unpleasant, and nightmarish school odes with no time for innocence."
The Good of it All:  a Harlin Quist Book
The Good of it All: a Harlin Quist Book
"someone seriously needs to issue a compendium of the Harlin Quest books, or we need a comprehensive Harlin Quist website - these collectors' prices prevent us from enjoying the sinister, forboding magic of childhood paranoia and anxiety."
Daybreak: Thoughts on the Prejudices of Morality (Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy)
Daybreak: Thoughts on the Prejudices of Morality (Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy)
"not to downplay the importance of his other works, Daybreak is perhaps the misfit title that reads somewhat akin to Nirvana 'Nevermind' in the realm of philosophy, i think. A mirth injection from an aching hill climber."
