Tuesday Book Club

The far too intelligent Steven Shaviro offers up a review of the new Bret Easton Ellis novel Lunar Park. Before I heard about this a month or two ago I was prodding the internet to find out what had happened to Ellis, so it’s good to see the new novel surfacing. Shaviro’s super brain offers up a somewhat wordy review and look into the book and it sounds an interesting one. It’s a welcome change to have an Ellis central character that feels something. Now the long wait for the paperback begins.

Today I finished The Great Shark Hunt – a hefty collection of Hunter. S Thompson articles from sixties through to the end of the seventies. With only one or two exceptions it was a great read with Thompson at the height of his powers, and a fascinating look into that time period through the ever twisted eyes of the late Doctor. I also found it rather interesting to read some of his earlier pieces done before his energetic style blossomed and they form a nice contrast by appearing in the middle of the book between chunks of the more familiarly constructed material.
