The Man Who Made Lists: Love, Death, Madness, and the Creation of Roget's Thesaurus by Joshua Kendall
The Man Who Made Lists: Love, Death, Madness, and the Creation of Roget's Thesaurus

moldenke, April 25, 2008

It is so easy to view disability as just that , a disability. And while the unique person with a "handicap" is so often viewed from the part that makes them strange or some people uneasy, but for the most part they are kind of like a poorly wrapped present with the best gift imaginable inside. My OCD now feels like an extra thumb or a musical ear that Mozart would murder for. Thank you Mr. Roget, without you I would spend so much time printing out mediocre stories.
Plus it is a propitious book. I would suggest buying the Roget's Thesarus as well, they are both good reads.

Zeroville by Steve Erickson
Zeroville

It's like siting at Pershing Square at sunrise, peaking on an unimaginable new designer mescaline and suddenly Cary Grant sits beside you frantic, sweating, wiping his face with a clean handkerchief and with a moment collects his manhood and charisma and asks, " Have you seen her? Have you seen the beautiful woman who is trying to kill me?"

Stories in the Worst Way by Gary Lutz
Stories in the Worst Way

moldenke, April 12, 2008

Lutz manages to tangle words into sentences that snort fear into syntax and then as the aroma of the language begins to curl the buds of the tongue it becomes clear that the reader is dining in a kind of lyrical greasy spoon, where even the pigs in a blanket are a mad capped ambrosia. If you ever really want to understand the sentence, read Lutz.
