The Book of the New Sun is on my backlog, hopefully I'll get to it soon. What are your thoughts on it?
>>
Doesnt this book have some goil whos cursed with huge magical breasts. Like she cant fight or escape because her tits weigh her down.
>>
Pretty damn good, definitely one to re-read again and again for all the details and subtleties.
>>

lol no, you must be thinking of the undines, Abia's wives, who have grown so large they cannot leave the ocean or they'd fall apart from the gravity.
>>
Someone here once said Wolfe is a disciple of Borges in his writing style. Was that person speaking the truth or simply memeing?
>>
>>7662873
Just look it up in the interviews, Gene Wolfe is huge fan of Borges. He even outright says some parts of BOTNS were inspired by him.
>>
If you haven't read Wolfe, read this first, and the commentary.

Wolfe, like Nabokov, loves to write two-narratives in one.
>>
>>7662866
So no boobs in the story?
>>
>>7662889
If it helps they boast that their tits can sink ships.
>>
literally the greatest work of fiction ever written fight me
>>
>>7662858
Yes, actually, her name is Jocasta.
>>
>>7662880
Borges has a cameo in the novel lol
>>7662858
There are giant sea women who can't go out the sea for gravity and there is a woman who is engineered to look gorgeous
>>
>>7662837
I just finished it last night. It was a trip, to say the least. While the books themselves aren't by any means bad, the most enjoyment you'll find from it is from discovering its story-within-a-story. That's when the real crazy shit starts seeping through.
>>
>>7662889
Oh no, there are many boobs.
