MNO

As I’m just over half-way through the alphabet, I’m going to do a top five books so far:

  1. I, Claudius - Graves
  2. A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius - Eggers
  3. Dubliners - Joyce
  4. Under the Skin - Faber
  5. In Cold Blood - Capote

° I couldn’t even finish it. I made it to the half-way point, then had to stop. The book is supposed to be (partly) a take on Joyce, but I found the obfuscated narrative unreadable. Maybe this is what Finnegan’s Wake is like?
