An easy (for you) month: I only finished five books in November, and I've already blogged about two of them separately. We had:
- In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. More non-fiction that reads like fiction, my favorite kind. Another one for my Metaphors That Don't SuckTM File: "He had merely fallen face down across the bed, as though sleep were a weapon that had struck him from behind."
- Burning Bright by John Steinbeck. I love theme-and-variations kinds of stories. This structure of the "Play in Story Form" was an interesting idea but hard to believe in as a new genre. This is a tiny book and yet it gets in deep and quickly, and still manages to keep being surprising. I really liked it.
- The Haunted Bookshop by Christopher Morley. About this book I've said too much already.
- Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk.
- A Year in Van Nuys by Sandra Tsing Loh, also already blogged here.
