The Wasp Factory by Ian Banks

I really enjoyed The Wasp Factory.

If you like Banks, you might try Espedair Street, which isn't quite so bleak, and of course, his SciFi as Iain M. Banks is absolutely phenomenal. I recommend everything from "The Culture."

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Well worth getting past the moocow sentence. Did Frank McCourt model Angela's Ashes after this work or what?

The Pale King by David Foster Wallace. Genius and draftish at the same time. (This is the unfinished novel he was working on before taking his life.) Rebel Wallace is stuck at an IRS job for a year due to getting kicked out of Amherst for writing papers for rich kids.

Cool that he double majored in philosophy and English, his dad a philosophy professor.

Knocked out a good pulpy sci-fi last week: Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan.

Phillip K. Dick meets Raymond Chandler.

The War Below by James M. Scott.

Great book about the Silversides, Drum, and Tang in WWII. I'm biased since Dad provided much of the source material for the Silversides' part of the book.

great book!

I'm enjoying it, Roxy. J.W. Powell was a serious bad-ass, and it's a fascinating portrait of the West in the late 1860s, `70s, and 1880s.

I've also just posted my review of Frozen in Time, another World War II rescue story from Lost in Shangri-La author Mitchell Zuckoff.
