Gert’s reading has given her a few ideas for new books. What do you think? Which one should we start first?
Inspired by Emily Dickinson:
Tell all the truth but tell it slant: a no-holds-barred exposé of the sleazy world of political spin doctors.
Infirm delight: a touching geriatric romance.
From Wallace Stevens:
Stale moonlight: another romance, this time a weary tale of the gradual loss of love in a marriage between two very fat people.
From Kenzo’s Essays in Idleness:
Strange and unusual details: a tattooist goes to extraordinary lengths
In the godless month: a bacchanalian romp set in a convent
And from Aleksandar Hemon:
Heartrending losses and unlikely victories: a novel of Tolstoyan proportions in which all the characters are ants.
What do you think has the greatest potential to take the literary world by storm?
