Books Self Is Interested in Reading: bios of Bigfoot and Joni Mitchell, a novel about a Bay Area “rock and soul” band and a suspense novel set in upstate New York:
- J. Robert Lennon’s Castle
- Why does Eric hate his sister? Why can he remember so little of his childhood, and why won’t the woman in the hardware store sell him a gun?
- “You can only paint the town red so many times before you begin to bleed.”
- Joshua Blu Buhs’ Bigfoot
- “By imagining themselves into the body of Sasquatch, white working-class men could imagine themselves as black, as women, could come in contact with their own souls.”
- Michelle Mercer’s Will You Take Me As I Am
- (Joni) “Mitchell’s ability to articulate the sublime frequently reduces Mercer to a kind of fan-girl gush . . . “
