The next two weeks of reviews

March 27, 2010 § 1 Comment

After I write my review of Saul Bellow’s More Die of Heartbreak sometime Sunday, I’m going to be reading and reviewing the following books over the course of the next two weeks or so.  This perhaps will be the third and final installment in this review plan, as it would end up consuming four weeks at 32 total books in those 28 reviews.  Then again, I’m enjoying this, so if I have time, I might continue to do this for a few more weeks, or until the supply of books I’ve never read (and want to read) dwindles to zero.  As a twist, at least one book per inhabited continent will be reviewed.  Here’s the list:

Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o, Petals of Blood

Walter Moers, Rumo & His Miraculous Adventures

Nadine Gordimer, A Guest of Honour

 Thomas Pynchon, V.

Joel Shepard, Sasha; Petrodor

Samuel R. Delany, Neveryóna

Salman Rushdie, Shame

Brooks Hansen, The Chess Garden

Philip Roth, The Plot Against America

Roberto Arlt, El juguete rabioso

Housuke Nojiri, Usurper of the Sun

Katherine Dunn, Geek Love

Trent Jamieson, Death Most Definite

James Clavell, Shogun 

Which of these have you read?  Which are you most curious about?
