In Defense of Women

by H.L. Mencken

This is very funny. It's impossible to decide if Mencken is a feminist or a misogynist. Probably both. This book is still largely relevant.

Ulysses

by James Joyce

Unreadable. Completely opaque.

Not very good. Lacks any real sense of eroticism. It's about an incestous family that forks anything that moves. Yet every one in the story treats this as perfectly normal. So any sense that this behavior is deviant or erotic is lost completely. My guess is that this was written merely to shock Victorian morality. Inferior to most amateur porn stories you'll find on the net. Interesting, perhaps, to philologists.

The Best American Humorous Short Stories

by Various


Very poor. Not funny at all. Even the Twain stories. Don't bother. I can't imagine what the original editor was thinking. Did past generations think these stories were funny? I can't believe that.

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
