Meandering through the latest fiction
Trying to make sense of the latest fiction is never easy. Bemused by Jonathon Safran Foer's latest effort, Tree of Codes. Seems to take post-modernism to another level, as he literally dissects Bruno Schultz's The Street of Crocodiles, which had been made into a stop-action animation feature by the Quay Brothers some years before.
What are some of the books others have been reading or perusing lately? Doesn't necessarily have to deal with American history.
