The Blue Fox by Sjon
The Blue Fox

This book is beautiful. I was worried that it would be too magical, too lyrical, too metaphorical to easily understand, but though it is all of those things it is still fairly straightforward. Perfect book to drink strong coffee and lose yourself in.

Antigonick by Anne Carson and Bianca Stone

sduff222, February 26, 2013

This book is incredibly beautiful! The illustrations are truly gorgeous, printed on vellum, and the text is all handwritten. I want to buy this for everyone I know who's ever even heard of Antigone.

These stories are great! Funny and thought-provoking at the same time. I'm still thinking about them months after reading them.

When Marina Abramovic Dies: A Biography by James Westcott
When Marina Abramovic Dies: A Biography

sduff222, January 5, 2013

This book is a thorough examination of the glory that is Marina Abramovic. At times it can be a little too much of an apotheosis, but it really is fascinating. It also goes into a lot of detail about her lifestyle, and how her career got off the ground. Illuminating photographs are sprinkled throughout. Recommended for anyone curious about Ambramovic, or the art scene in general.

Green Girl by Kate Zambreno

This book seems to be at least partially inspired by The Hour of the Star by Clarice Lispector. I love how the narrator/voice discusses the protagonist. This is a book to read and ponder and discuss. Sure to strike a chord if you studied abroad in your 20s.
