On a Wave: A Surfer Boyhood by Thad Ziolkowski
On a Wave: A Surfer Boyhood

easyreeder, November 4, 2009

Wistful and evocative ... Ziolkowski's portrait of youth and passion engulfs and resonates with luminous poignance and poetry. We are indeed on his wave.

Darkly woven and wonderfully rendered ... a sensual suspense that bewitches the senses, melding disorder and desire in a way that is both disturbingly keen and stunningly sensitive.

The Annotated Nose: An Annotated Edition of William Hundwasser's Cult Classic The Nose by Marc Estrin
The Annotated Nose: An Annotated Edition of William Hundwasser's Cult Classic The Nose

easyreeder, August 26, 2009

I hereby present the Proboscis Award to The Annotated Nose!

I wish I could nominate for all kinds of more prestigious awards, but there you have it. The Proboscis Award, despite the fact that it is in its first year, is a time-honored badge of distinction, and highly coveted. Over 10,000 reviewers read through over 50,000 submissions, and have arrived at their decision entirely unanimously, without the aid of drugs or coercion. Really, the most brilliant catastrophe (and design) that I've seen published in my lifetime. Do read it.
