« Help wanted: book club | Main | A Pittsburgh bridge and a new novel »


If it's any consolation, I've only read two of the books on that list too!

O'Brien's Going After Cacciato may be my all time favorite book.

Ooh, O'Brien is hot! Powell's is sold out of "The Things They Carried" and will not backorder. On to the next cheerful online vendor.

You Remind Me Of Me might be one of my most favorite books of all time. Dan Chaon is a genius. You should really pick up his collection Among The Missing -- it was up for the national book award the year Franzen won.

Thanks Tod! We're reading Chaon's Among the Missing, too. I hear he's coming to Pitt in the fall for a weekend or something -- I hope as grad students we get to spend a little time with him.

He's an exceptionally nice guy. You should Paperhaus him. I bet he'd have some interesting picks. And when is Pitist debuting?
