📖 Nachdem ich den restlichen Monat nur Seminarlektüre (auch ganz tolle, aber trotzdem!) vor mir hatte, ist heute endlich mal wieder Zeit meinen Lesestoff selbst zu bestimmen: Amerikanische soziale Ungleichheiten mit Witz 📖

Não é à toa que a @quatrocincoum é "a revista dos livros": ela sabe do que fala, e fala bem. A terceira edição, que já está disponível em livrarias, trouxe "O vendido", do Paul Beatty, na capa. Sem querer dar spoilers: tá muito boa! #bookstagram #literatura #paulbeatty

Got to hear Paul Beatty speak tonight as part of Festival of Ideas in #bristol Very intriguing man. Appears to be blasé but I suspect not. And pretending not to be controversial. #festivalofideas #bristol #paulbeatty #bookstagram

Amici ritardatari! Per i regali dell'ultimo minuto vi proponiamo una selezione di titoli di #narrativa moderna e contemporanea che abbiamo pubblicato quest'anno nella nostra collana «Le strade». È stato doloroso escluderne alcuni, ma qualcuno doveva pur farlo per aiutarvi nella scelta!
PS: Manca #LoSchiavista di #PaulBeatty perché son finite tutte le copie in #casaeditrice, ma va da sé che lo consigliamo con tutto il cuore.

Repost from @fazieditore Ieri sia @la_lettura che #Robinson di @larepubblica hanno dedicato un paginone a #Slumberland di #PaulBeatty, che domenica 19 sarà ospite a @libricome Non vediamo l'ora che arrivi a Roma! «Slumberland parla del sentirsi diversi quando la diversità è stata sdoganata, dei muri che ci costruiamo dentro»
dalla recensione di Gianni Santoro su la Repubblica «Sono una persona che pensa molto ai muri, alle delimitazioni, alle barriere»

The San Mateo Public Library's new Book Discussion Group meets next week!

Join us next Thursday, August 3, at 6:30 p.m. in the Cedar Room to discuss our first selection is The Sellout by Paul Beatty. Until then, ponder how the cover art - an illustration of a lawn jockey - summarizes the narrator’s core conflict. Contact Librarian Cynthia McCarthy at cmccarthy@cityofsanmateo.org for more information.

Não é difícil me fazer feliz: me dê bons livros e um bilhetinho querido. O "Acre" da Lucrecia Zappi @zappil, passado na Vila Buarque paulistana, vou conhecer já. "O Vendido", que tem essa capa foda, eu já tava se olho. E curti bem os trechinhos em formato mini (mostro no Stories). Amei e, sim, seguimos conversando @todavialivros 💎📚

Stayed up way past my bedtime to finish this. #thesellout #paulbeatty #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #booklover #bookworm

Just finished my first #PaulBeatty read and I'm hooked! Fantasy meets anthropology meets coming of age meets poetry fiction. Nothing like it 🙏🏾❤️📚 #readingisfundamental #nerdingout #books

Book 21.
I finished this book last month, and am only just posting about it now; partly owing to work/stress/moving house, partly because I didn't know what to say.
To begin with, I should say that I read this book based solely on the fact that it won the Man Booker last year. No one recommended it, and I had no clue as to what it was about.
So...
The first paragraph was one of the best openings to a book I have ever read, and I felt completely hooked. However, from that point onwards, it felt like one long, never ending sentence, that made me oh so tired. As the too long, too complex sentences stretched on, I found it quite inaccessible. Satires are not my thing, but I tried to persevere. When attempting to describe what the book was about to friends, I found that in stripping away the actual plot from the structure and form, I was describing an incredibly relevant, innovative and wholly essential story; one that I wanted to read! Yet I wasn't enjoying reading it. I often found myself going through swathes of text again and again trying to find some sense, however, it was bookended by pages of superb, slap-in-the-face writing that I loved, and really shook me. Essentially, I didn't like it. It made me feel stupid, but not in a way that spurred me to further educate myself.
It put me into a bit of a reading slump, and has pushed me a little behind in my challenge. So, any recommendations of brilliant 'un-put-down-able' books, please fire away!

"That's the problem with history, we like to think it's a book - that we can turn the page and move the fuck on. But history isn't the paper it's printed on. It's memory, and memory is time, emotions, and song. History is the things that stay with you."
