ITT: Your favourite author's worst book.

Love is blind.

Hollywood by Bukowski. Haven't read Pulp yet, it might be worse.

>The Double for Dostoyevsky

Hardly. It's his best work pre-arrest, certainly better than Poor Folk.
Here is his worst book.
>>
>>7606052
Michael Cera core

>>7606049
The ending of Hollywood made me smile though
>>
The bible

>>7606073
Nah, Hypersphere is Anonymous worst book.
>>
Amerika
>>
>>7606052
>>7606039
nah, it was The Adolescent.

I preferred The Double to The Gambler. The latter hardly felt like a Dostoevsky story at all. The Double at least had an atmosphere.
>>
>>7606039
The Middle C.

Why are you here?

...so far.
I can picture a finishing of the circle though: anonymous writing (a book titled) The Holy Bible.

I actually liked the double.

Also, pic related, it was good, but doesn't get to the level of East of Eden or Winter of our Discontent.

it saddens me that he wasted so much effort on this instead of writing Doors of Stone.
>>
That being said, it has its highs and lows. It felt rushed to completion, and I've read it may have been a contractual thing. It starts stronger than it ends, though.

>>7606107
Are you serious? Amerika is tied with The Trial as my favorite of Franz Kafka's works, all short stories and all. What did you not like about it?
>>
>>7606039
I didn't like it too
>>
>>7606039

Based on subject this just bored me but the Pendlebury accounts were amusing, what I found annoying was his over use of french expressions which I couldn't translate at the time of reading.

Tortilla Flat is still way better than the fucking Red Pony.

Heyo reddit.

>>7606936
It's not bad at all, just not as good as, say, The Tunnel or Omensetter's Luck. Anything by Gass is phenomenal.

Is it really fair to say Joyce has a worst anything?
>>
>>7609029

Joyce's drama and poetry work are relatively weak, but his worst book is like the shortest giant.

Aw hell no

Holy shit, literally end yourself immediately.
