Maybe I put too much faith in atmosphere

It's taken me eighteen months but now I'm back to reading this superbly written book -- but not in chronological order (I have reader's block).

It's time this fine topic was bumped anyway -- three months is too long! Grin

Wow, it has been awhile since this thread has been active. Since my last update, I've read quite a few books. Here's the last three months:
-Star Wars: The Dark Lord Trilogy, by James Luceno and Matthew Stover
-Tarantula: Poems, by Bob Dylan
-The Beach Boys and the California Myth, by David Leaf
-The Underground Railroad, by Colson Whitehead
-Gone to the Country: The New Lost City Ramblers and the Folk Revival, by Ray Allen
-Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris

Right now, I'm reading Visions of Gerard, by Jack Kerouac.

Currently about halfway through my second reading of Nancy Hertzberg's Frontier Inventory. What a chilling book. The second person narration really drives home the nightmarishness. On the back burner is Maxine Chernoff's short story collection Bop. That 80's series of Vintage Contemporaries with the Sega Master System box art looking covers was sure something.
