Recently Read/Currently (Re)Reading

Sum, David Eagleman—superb and imaginative, but not as mindblowing as I'd expected.

The Sound and the Fury, William Faulkner—I'd forgotten how disorienting the first thirty or so pages are.

The Iliad, Homer—fantastic, but not as good (and, frankly, not as exciting) as The Odyssey. (I'm reading the Fitzgerald translation.)

While Mortals Sleep, Kurt Vonnegut—just started. This is his early, previously unpublished fiction, so I wouldn't be surprised to find that it's not nearly as good as his later work.

Fall Higher, Dean Young—just started. Impressions to come!
