Thoughts on this prolific magic realist? Also I cant find out if he's gay irl. Not that it would bother me but it would clarify some of the homoerotic elements in his work.

PLEB N PROUD

PLEB N PROUD 6 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
/lit/, I am a neurotic dumbshit who can barely function in society. I've been irritable and regularly have been part of the mental health system of my country. I get up each morning and struggle through a simple, low wage job. And even there I am a burden and only hold my position through nepotism. My problem, as vain as it is. Is dealing with being such a fucking plebian now. My intelligence, my main source of pride and face, is all but diminished now. I forget to do the most basic tasks that every other functioning member of society can sufficiently remember and achieve. Can you recommend a book for me that will allow me to accept being a pleb. Pic unrelated, but if anyone wants to have a discussion of NZ literature on the side you are welcome (my image folder on this computer sux)

Can you think of a sadder writer's life than Wolfgang Borchert's life? 1941: Living a bit of a drifter's life during the WW2, at age 20 Borchert was drafted into the German army. He was sent to the east front, where he was put in military prison by his superiors for cutting off his finger (he claimed it was a Soviet soldier). They sent him to military prison for a different crime, subsequently he contracted severe frostbite and hepatitis. After he was transferred, another soldier denounced him for making jokes about Goebbels and Borchert went back to military prison. On the subsequent release, his company was captured by French soldiers. He jumped off the train to the POW camp and walked home over a week, during which the Germans surrendered. After the war (he was 24) Borchert started to write plays and novels full-time, knowing he won't live long. He died of liver failure from his hepatitis in 1947 aged 26, having produced 4 plays, 51 poems, and about 60 short stories in 2 years. His work is some of the best postwar German literature there is: he is still widely taught in German schools, theaters are named after him. And here I am with you, both in our twenties, both of us lurking on /lit/, having produced absolutely nothing.

http://www.listchallenges.com/kaunismina-bbc-6-books-challenge Well just make this a "post your score" thread if that works, but that's not really why I'm making this thread (I got 23, but that's only due to a bunch of required reading in HS). I just want to point out that MOTHERFUCKING SWALLOWS AND AMAZONS is on that list. I nostalgia'd in my pants so hard. I thought I was the only person younger than 50 who even knew that series existed. >BETTER DROWNED THAN DUFFERS >IF NOT DUFFERS WON'T DROWN

what is a thread? what can a thread do for me? is there a thread that can end our misery? or is it the moth to the flame, sticky paper lined with suckers hoping for a wholesome meal? perhaps it's just entertainment like the diary pages thrust upon the virtual ether, like masturbation is to making love with another warm naked body pressed against your skin, wet with steam, heaving and sighing is this just a place to be vulnerable? without consequence you are not really vulnerable. if we shared the things we share here with another person, that moment puts fear in our mouths and falls at a stranger's feet. and it is free. if just for a moment instead we put fear into our mind and throw it into the pretend hole, only echoes amplifying our fears back to us. the tongue we stick out must come back, at best we bite it is this just some poor substitute for a friend? or perhaps a chance to be a friend? this is unnatural. if i saw your faces and heard your voices i'd probably be done with this board. maybe out of rejection, maybe out of realizing you and i aren't really so different from the people i see in the street. maybe then i won't be so afraid of them maybe
