Rereading Cloud Atlas while off work. Love David Mitchell books tbh, 1000 autumns of Jacob de Zoet is brilliant also.

Just after finishing Portnoy's Complaint, some Roth fans on here judging from some of the earlier posts in here. God it's funny. Creepy as fuck but meant to be. And the best "and now, the punchline..." joke in literary history.

Anyone read The Nix? About to finish it. Very uneven and parts absolutely unreadable. This review is about right. Been wanked over in others.

Loved reading Roth but got to about 7 and forgot which ones I'd read and stopped.

I gather there's a fair bit of variety, they're not all first person stream of consciousness rants Loved it though. The Plot Against America looks like the next port of call.

Also I doubt my dad would've let me read Portnoy's Complaint when I was seven
