I'm just looking for some reading recommendations, i'm not particularly fussy about the genre. Give me three titles and a brief synopsis and there is a good chance ill go out and grab them this weekend.
so far this month I've read:
The iron king by Maurice Druon.
Its a historical fiction about the end of the Templars in France and the death of philip the fair. its part of a larger series and fairly information heavy. its often quoted as being one of the inspirations for game of thrones which kind of does it a disservice.
Bear by Marian Engel
its a pseudo coming of age tale, often touted as feminist literature. a young women moves to the north lands of Ontario for work only to fall in love with a bear, Ursidae variety not the hairy gay man, realizes she doesn't need men. tulip shaped penis' ends up getting scratched. Not a long read but not a great one either.
Pulp by Charles Bukowski
In his last novel his writing seemed to portray the fact that he knew he was on deaths door. its slightly less misogynistic than most of his other works but its also probably one of his most smarmy and sarcastic. the novel starts off with a dedication to bad writing and just runs with it.
