What are some books you've picked up, read but don't often see discussed.
Pic related is a book about a court dwarf in the 15th century. I know others have read it and I'd like to see what they think about it.
I had that book. I had a beautiful old edition with red pages, and I stupidly gave it to my gf because she was Polish and it took place in Poland a bit. She broke up with me and I never got it back... fuck.
>Was I really the only person made slightly uncomfortable by this idea that ‘dwarves’ are some sort different non-human species and representing all the evil inside all of us?
just think of them like gingers, who are born without souls
Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis.
Used to be very popular but not anymore.
Asylum by William Seabrook
Gonzo journalism before Hunter S Thompson. I really good read about a man who tries to cure alcoholism by entering an insane asylum.
