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?

One response to “question everything: we would have been safe”

  1. it’s on my reading list! i just ordered it, along with the newest Post-Secret book and Sheikh’s “Moksha.”
    Extremely Loud is a deeply poetic and sculptural novel. It’s made me think in a way that few things have stimulated me to do in years. I hope you enjoy it as much as Amy, Bjorn, and I have.
