Today begins a new chapter into the /lit/club. I made a fateful mistake by choosing the subject for the first nomination (Book Published 2 Years Ago) because of those bastards at the FBI. There are different resources vying for the vacancy filled by such a great site and I found one called

annas-archive.org which indexes a bunch of shadow sites.

Anyways without more stalling tactics. I present the list for this season and the nomination: World of Wonders
https://annas-archive.org/md5/fce03919d0c018a1334ff83aa0790a7e

Thank you everyone as usual and I look forward to your tastes.

ANIMAL PLANET is the next theme, books centered around animal characters and their environment.

Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) is better known today than he was in life and perhaps best-known for his story that the movie "Blade Runner" was based on. For me, his book "The Man in the High Castle"(1962) is one of my favorite SF books, a book I first read when I was in 6th grade. I found Dick's depiction of an America under the control of German and Japanese conquerors to be disturbing…the idea of a defeated America was hard to accept for a kid who enjoyed watching John Wayne films!
"The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch" was published in 1964 and I first read it in the 90s. And even though I was an adult, I also found it disturbing. The story is about a man of mystery- Palmer Eldritch-who returns from a trip to the Proxima system bearing a gift for mankind. It's the drug "Chew-Z" capable of transporting people to illusory worlds. In the world of 2016 (when the Earth has heated up and Antarctica is a beach resort), the drug appeals especially to the lonely colonists of Mars. But this gift has a price…. I have to say I did not find the book so disturbing upon a second reading- in this the "real" year of 2016. The reason is that I find the reality of our political situation to be even more disturbing. Hopefully, however, Trump will not be another Eldritch Palmer!

He was featured in the book club, I think the first one of 4 in the Sea of Fertility quadrology. Runaway Horses felt very relatable when things feel hopeless and you can really see Mishima poured his soul into that one.
Sea of Fertility is about 2 buddies and a chick and 1 buddy dies but gets reincarnated each book while the other buddy gets older and lives his life.

I saw Emily Wilson at a grocery store in Philadelphia a few days ago. I told her how cool it was to meet her in person, but I didn't want to be a douche and bother her and ask her for autographs or anything.

She said, "Oh, like you're doing now?"

I was taken aback, and all I could say was "Huh?" but she kept cutting me off and going "huh? huh? huh?" and closing her hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard her chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw her trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in her hands without paying.

The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like "Maam, you need to pay for those first." At first she kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, she stopped her and told her to scan them each individually "to prevent any electrical infetterence," and then turned around and winked at me. I don't even think that's a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, she kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

I've been lifting weights while listening to Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War and it's striking how many similarities there are between the Athenians and the USA. A powerful, democratic government that's always seeking to reshape everyone else in its own image. The line that the Athenians "are a people never given to rest and who give no rest to others" hits particularly close to home. I've always heard people compare America to the Roman Republic, but Athens is a much more apt comparison.

I dislike intensely The Brothers Karamazov and the ghastly Crime and Punishment rigamarole. No, I do not object to soul-searching and self-revelation, but in those books the soul, and the sins, and the sentimentality, and the journalese, hardly warrant the tedious and muddled search. Dostoyevsky's lack of taste, his monotonous dealings with persons suffering with pre-Freudian complexes, the way he has of wallowing in the tragic misadventures of human dignity - all this is difficult to admire. I do not like this trick his characters have of "sinning their way to Jesus" or, as a Russian author, Ivan Bunin, put it more bluntly, "spilling Jesus all over the place." Crime and Punishment's plot did not seem as incredibly banal in 1866 when the book was written as it does now when noble prostitutes are apt to be received a little cynically by experienced readers. Dostoyevsky never really got over the influence which the European mystery novel and the sentimental novel made upon him. The sentimental influence implied that kind of conflict he liked-placing virtuous people in pathetic situations and then extracting from these situations the last ounce of pathos. Non-Russian readers do not realize two things: that not all Russians love Dostoevsky as much as Americans do, and that most of those Russians who do, venerate him as a mystic and not as an artist. He was a prophet, a claptrap journalist and a slapdash comedian. I admit that some of his scenes, some of his tremendous farcical rows are extraordinarily amusing. But his sensitive murderers and soulful prostitutes are not to be endured for one moment-by this reader anyway. Dostoyevsky seems to have been chosen by the destiny of Russian letters to become Russia's greatest playwright, but he took the wrong turning and wrote novels.

For some reason, I just didn't like Kafka's short fiction as much as The Trial or The Castle. I recently read DFW's essay about Kafka, and it convinced me to retry the short stories to see if I can force myself to enjoy them. Perhaps specifically trying to find the humor in each one, as was part of the purpose of Wallace's essay.

>*Cormac McCarthy writes an incredibly obtuse passage with no punctuation*
>GENIUS!!! :-OOOOO I LIKE HIM ALMOST AS MUCH AS JOYCE (I AM VERY SMART)
Yes you are very silly. After many years of blaming myself and thinking I'm a hack after receiving feedback, I have concluded that most people don't understand shit of what they read, but keep canned responses on the ready if the author is famous. If my slightly fancy prose is unintelligible you should hate Joyce or McCarthy with a passion because they're incredibly more difficult to parse.

Imagine asking what's stolen my powers, you
Stinking whore, all this endless time,
When you've one black tooth, and when ripe old age
Furrows your brow with wrinkles,
When an ugly hole like a leathery old cow's
Gapes between withered buttocks!
Yet that flabby chest, and those breasts, like the teats
Of a mare, can still excite me,
And that spongy belly, and those scrawny thighs,
Set on those swollen legs.
Bless you, and may masculine figures in triumph
Bear your funeral along.
Let no married woman wander about, weighed down
By rounder fruits than yours.
What if the little works of the Stoics prefer

His cock so small I take it all in my mouth
Vanishing a part of me
The tumid bit I'm suckling
Like a digit, like my thumb
Like I'm drinking from my mum
His nipple dick hairless prick
Wrapped between my baby boy lips
Suckle suckle sip
When he comes I get my fix
Burp and lick my lips

This is for the chick I see at the coffee shop
we locked eyes and smiled today (or smirked is more like it)
(we'd only ever locked eyes before)
