Three friends have now recommended Jonathan Safran Foer‘s novel, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Jack, Amy, Bjorn, your joint pointer carries a lot of weight and it is the next book I read. Palimpsest has some interesting discussion about the book.
While feeling my way through the information cloud around Foer and this book, I came across another fascinating book: Giles Goat-Boy by John Barth. Anyone else read it?
Nazraeli Press has just published a debut book by Kazumi Takahashi (don’t think this is the same person as the filmmaker), “High Tide Wane Moon“. Richly printed, exquisitely sequenced, and a quiet ode to the moon and the sea, this is among the most pensive books I’ve seen. It is available through PhotoEye Books.
