Swann's Way (Classics Deluxe Edition): In Search of Lost Time, Volume 1 by Marcel Proust and Lydia Davis
Swann's Way (Classics Deluxe Edition): In Search of Lost Time, Volume 1

Callan, June 19, 2007

Why not do something you always told yourself you would? And why not in the latest, most excitingly lucid translation? You will thank yourself, and experience something near bliss when you enter the moment through the door of the madeleine.

Another Bullshit Night in Suck City: A Memoir by Nick Flynn
Another Bullshit Night in Suck City: A Memoir

Callan, June 19, 2007

Nick Flynn's memoir reveals itself as a coming of age, a sharp view of pain, a shadow of a city and manhood in a certain time and place, and the reader's own painful search for the self, with compassion and subtlety.

The Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram: Nine Faces of the Soul by Sandra Maitri
The Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram: Nine Faces of the Soul

Callan, January 16, 2007

Sandra Maitri, a teacher in the Diamond Approach, brings this brilliant and deep system home. She takes psychodynamic tradition and connects it to spirituality in a way that connects pathology directly to the hope for and the reality of spiritual wholeness. This book is great to read with Facets of Unity by A.H. Almaas. Read it, be changed by it.

Lichtenberg Figures by Ben Lerner
Lichtenberg Figures

Callan, October 28, 2006

Brilliant, funny, complex, deadpan, at times opening up onto reality in such a naked way that it brings laughter and a kind of "hm". Enjoyable, rewarding poetry.
