Proposal: CoaBG Book Club

I know that many of us have been very influenced in our life outlook by similar books. Among these are Infinite Jest by DFW and Fight Club by Chuck P. I propose this as a space to bring up other books that may be of great interest/benefit to the Norton cohort.

I won’t mention the Danielewski Double (House of Leaves/Only Revolutions) at this point.

I submit “Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates.”

It features: contradictions, the CIA, South America, faith, beauty, lust for 16 year old girls, lust for nuns, prophecy, Catholicisim, and a generally wholesome and productive philosophy of life.

  3. I’ve heart good things about that one, Bama. And Tuck’s propositioning 13 year olds aside, I’d be for it.
