Still playing catch-up.
116. Jacob’s Room, by Virginia Woolf
Wonderfully impressionistic, it tells the story of Jacob Flanders, from boyhood to his death in the war.
117. The Boy Who Followed Ripley, by Patricia Highsmith
The fourth in the five book series. Not as strong as the previous three, but fun nonetheless.
118. I Can Say Interpellation!, by Stephen Cain
In this work of détournement, Stephen Cain riffs off ten popular children’s rhymes to produce radical and politically charged poems. The repurposed stories deal, often brutally, with racial politics, climate change, drug use, rampant capitalism and consumer culture, among other horrors of the modern world.
