Anybody read this? I finished it a bit ago. It's pretty awesome, even though the narrator is a huge wanker.

What are /lit's thoughts on Malazan? I love ASoIaF but I'm hesitant picking up fantasy series after dropping The Sword of Truth halfway through.

hey /lit/, what are your favorite plays? extra points if love is a main focus - i basically have to choose some plays to study for an exam on "the literature of love" and it's pretty open beyond that

What are some good books on the theory of writing? I only know of The Elements of Style, but it seems to divide critics. Is it worth the read?

What if the reason particular people get married to other particular people is because they see in each other the most offensive personality characteristics they find in their opposite sex parent and marrying them is symbolically forgiving their parent of that trait via embrace and acceptance? Dah

Rate my misogynistic manifesto, /lit/? http://www.scribd.com/doc/225936731/Untitled >Humanity…All of my suffering on this world has been at the hands of humanity, particularly women. It has made me realize just how brutal and twisted humanity is as a species. All I ever wanted was to fit in and live a happy life amongst humanity, but I was cast out and rejected, forced to endure an existence of loneliness and insignificance, all because the females of the human species were incapable of seeing the value in me.

Last time on /lit/ We were talking about the importance of grammar, spelling...ETC. LSS: We have an issue with someone saying "I would rather read the best idea with no grammar and it's not making any since vs a well written story but most likely the plot sucks and everything is there..." seriously, I figured /lit/ would understand my side to this. For about 3 days, I've been arguing why it's important to have good everything in writing. That's not just including grammar and spelling. why is this an issue to some people? They would rather read something that makes no sense?

>I have the feeling that Henríquez Ureña -clearly it is absurd to say this-, that he had read everything, Everything. And at the same time he did not use that knowledge to overwhelm the conversation. He was a very polite man, and, as the Japanese -He did not like to argue; he preferred it when his interlocutor was right and not he himself, which is a fairly rare virtue, especially in this country [Argentina], right? -Borges Do you know of any books on people or societies like Henriquez Ureña, /lit/?

How do you deal with lack of motivation to read and illiterate phases? I was meandering through A Clockwork Orange recently but I put it down and it's been nearly a week since I bothered reading anything offline.

"We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives." >Implying this isn't the goddamn truth.

Is this real life?

So I think I remember hearing about this renowned book by an Indian (maybe Sri Lankan) guy. The thing is, I don't remember the title, I just remember someone on the radio or in the news talking about the opening line: "I am a corpse." Apparently she really liked the book. Does this sound familiar or did I dream it?
