House of Leaves

by

is one of the best books I’ve ever read.  Granted, I’m still working my way through the appendix, all 200-odd pages of it (which are fascinating though!).  But I’ve finished the book proper, and though it needs time to sink in, I name it Awesome and give it dominion over all the postmodernism.  Please read it (but not the Wikipedia entry unless you want the fantastic plot spoiled).

What is it, I try to answer before I’m late for class?  A suspenseful horror story made the more suspenseful by the interweaving of a story by a poetic Kerouac-meets-Hunter-S.-Thompson editor and by some bizarre postmodern fuckingarounderry.

Also, sorry about not updating 55aday again.  A bunch this week I promise.
