Men & Apparitions is about photography, “New Men,” ethnography, family history, interpreting images, growing up, falling apart, and just about everything else in its own wonky way, featuring Clover Adams, a praying mantis named Mr. Petey and a kindly elderly painter in Amsterdam, but ultimately it a brilliant novel about, funny, charming, intelligent, sensitive man trying to understand what it means to be alive. A new classic in the “figuring shit out” genre.

What do you hear when you hear a house settle? Why do you dream when you move to a new apartment? What is your sense of direction? Houses of Ravicka is something like Escher noir written by Charlie Chaplin and edited by Gertrude Stein. Gladman is a genius, one of our greatest contemporary experimental writers & Houses is a breathtaking exploration of what it means to live in and with cities.

Harley has worked for her father Duke since she was sixteen, dreading the day she will succeed him as North County's most dangerous drug lord. But her time has run out. The Springfields, her family's biggest rivals, are coming after her in an attempt to pressure Duke. Harley must choose: follow in her father's footsteps--or burn the whole thing down. A fierce and feminist thriller, Barbed Wire Heart is chilling, atmospheric, and just about unputdownable.

This book captured me from the very beginning and never let me go. The horror-ecological-sci-fi (my new hybrid genre) aspects of the book made me feel claustrophobic in a thrilling way as I raced to finish, staying up all night in the process. This first book in Vandermeer's trilogy has us following a stoic biologist who enters into an alien world where nature has taken back what mankind has ruined, with deadly results.

Winter, the second book in the Seasons Quartet, continues in the same vein as Autumn with vignettes about items, events, and people Knausgaard encounters in the season. I found the essays in turns funny, endearing, and haunting. A few of my favorite essays are "Winter Sounds", "Guests", and "Winter Boots".
