    1. msarki.tumblr/post/5747899Twelve starts the narrator has made in writing this letter. Trying to find the right word. Troubled by his own knowing that the right word will be the wrong word. He says he is trying out voices.He is confiding in Mr. Capote, as in Truman Capote. His newest confidant. The newest receptor of this personal letter. Norman Mailer was his first choice, but he did not last. Norman did not play his cards right. Norman played this narrator for a fool. This is the word he will s [...]

    2. I wish that more people knew who Gordon Lish was so that I could coin the verb to lish. I've always wanted to coin something. Maybe Lish's relative (and undeserved) obscurity would work to my advantage. Maybe. Anyhow, I hope, if lishing ever catches on, that I receive my due recognition in the OED and elsewheresh, verb. 1. To alter a common or ordinary item or idea so as to make it unrecognizable and utterly remarkable. 2. To turn garbage into gold, to make dust into diamonds, to fashion puke in [...]

    3. I finally finished! Praise God, sweet merciful arbiter of the universe. I think this might actually be the last of the serial killer themed novels I have to read this term, I cannot put into words how grateful I am.Some fun facts about this book:+ the prose style made me want to run away, it just piles up cliches and popular expressions until you are buried under a deluge of meaningless words and putting serious thought into punching the next person who says any variation on 'face the facts' to [...]

    4. Great premise - serial killer trying to sell his life story to a famous author via a long promotional letter. So good. The book moves slowly; Lish unveils his killer's motives and history (along with his cringe worthy mode of killing)in a rambling, distracted style. Made me feel unsettled as to what occurred and who is real, even at the end.That being said, this book was a labor of love. His writing is sometimes repetitive and sometimes obtuse but always entertaining. It feels like he's tries to [...]

    5. Props to anyone whose read and can say that they're comfortable with where they're at reading. A mindfuck, a festival of nightmares, a celebration of psychosis, your first time reading anything worth reading, period, Lish brings it. Or brought it. It's brung, motherfucker!

    6. I could in theory finish this, since I don't have much left to read, but I can't do it now. This book is truly aggravating.
