The Best Books I Read This Year Speedboat by Renata Adler Remember earlier this year when everyone, their mother, and two of their cousins were reading and tweeting about Speedboat? Reprinted by NYRB Classics, Speedboat blew everyone away as easily in 2013 as it did in 1976. I’m not ashamed to have hopped on the Adler bandwagon. This is a stunning, beautiful, and inventive novel that everyone should read.
This is the second installment of Lincoln Michel’s Monsters of Modern Literature; the first ran one year ago today. They’re also available as trading cards.
We can’t think of any better way for us to celebrate Halloween than to have Lincoln Michel draw up the great monsters of modern literature.
