The Super RAD! and the Super Eh.

Posted in book porn by Lauren Leto on January 8, 2010

Super RAD! books I’ve read lately:

The Original of Laura by Vladimir Nabokov (as you all know: here and here and here and here).

American Nerd by Benjamin Nugent: Combines history and personal anecdotes to explain sociological and psychological origins and effects of “nerds” in our culture. Funny and interesting.

Super Eh. books I’ve read lately:

Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell: Eh. The most interesting part is that he performs oral sex on his girlfriend while in a shark tank after she just saw her brother being eaten by a shark.

Manhood for Amateurs by Michael Chabon: Fell flat.

    I agree that Chabon’s book is “underwhelmimg,” to quote those book dorks in Sloan.
