Unreconciled: Poems 1991–2013Unreconciled: Poems 1991–2013 by Michel Houellebecq

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


I appreciate Houellebecq's writing. particularly his novels, but his cynicism and existential angst , I think, are poorly suited to poetry. The book includes both the English translation and the original French so readers can compare. I found it interesting and insightful, particularly for Houellebecq fans, but not especially easy or poetic.

Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common ReaderEx Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader by Anne Fadiman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A lovely collection of short essays about the love of books and language. Beautifully written, smart, funny and full of sesquipedalian.
