What do you recommend?
>>

Just read "The Moor's Account" by Laila Lalami.

Pretty solid as far as historical fiction goes, and pretty short, I knocked it out in two days. Pulitzer Fiction and Man Booker finalist.

Also, Soumission and Brief History of Seven Killings were great.

>>7584950
Is My Struggle just a scandinavian whining? Is there any action?
>>
>>7584950
Houellebecq is overrated right wing trash, and not even the good kind
>>
Mother of Hydrogen by Vinay Gupta. It's not edited yet, but it's worth reading anyway. Magic without actual magic, set a bit in the future

Soumission was pretty funny, and had some legit political suspense to it.

That said, he is a bit of an alarmist, like how he has white women suddenly dressing modestly and public schools become muslim the second a muslim gets a majority in a parliament
>>
>>7584970
pls dont' advertise your novel on /lit/
>>
>>7584975
yeah I think that's the main problem I had with it, too much sensationalisation of false facts detracting from the humour
>>
>>7584938
I am very upset by the fact that Pynchon is more famous than Gass.
>>
>>7585007
Is The Tunnel a postmodern wall of prose to untangle ala Joyce/Pynchon
>>
anyone got some good heist novels to read? I literally can't find any in the market. and I've already been tricked a fair bit of times by books that advertise "thieves" only for it to be your typical damsel in distress novel
>>
Sorry for the poor quality, but does this answer your question?
>>
>>7585029
Is that Gass? If so, ha.
>>
>>7585034
Yes. Page 25 of The Tunnel. Gass is Joyce's successor, but no one has heard of him.
>>
>>7584976
It's not mine. I just like it so much I feel motherly instincts towards it and want everyone to love it as much as i do waaaaah even the author doesn't care enough to edit and get it published, I asked him on Twitter
