Powell's Book Store(s)


the last few things i've read the past couple of weeks...

-count zero by william gibson

-breakfast afternoon by andi watson

-5 is the perfect number by igort

-death in venice by thomas mann

can i say that most the stories in the collection death in venice are kind of same-y? that's how i felt...

I've never read Death in Venice with the other stories. My copy is standalone and therefore, very thin. The only other part of it is an intro by Michael Cunningham. I think I liked it, in that way that it seems very German and restricted even though its all about eroticism.

I have played it safe by not reading the other stories, so as to not risk coming to the same unacceptable conclusion.

Now you should watch this:

I haven't seen it but it looks cool.
