Swimming with the Razorfishes

Morgan is assembling a list of books to read next year, and asked what was on my list. See below. In no order, etc... Looking at some of these, it is embarassing that I have a degree in literature, but haven't read them.

Albert Camus

  • The Stranger

Lawrence Lessig

  • The Future of Ideas: The Fate of the Commons in a Connected World

Umberto Eco

  • Foucalt's Pendulum

Gabriel Garcia Marquez

  • One Hundred Years of Solitude

Julio Cortázar

  • End of the Game and Other Stories

Philip K Dick


Robert Musil

  • The Man Without Qualities

Aldous Huxley

  • The Doors of Perception

Truddi Chase

  • When Rabbit Howls

Haruki Murakami

  • The Wind-up Bird Chronicles

Jane Jacobs

  • Dark Age Ahead

Douglas R., Hofstadter

  • Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid

William S Burroughs

  • Naked Lunch
  • Junky's Christmas


  • Can I suggest a better book by Cort├ízar? Rayuela - i.e., Hopscotch. Someone has declared this the "Year of Cort├ízar" in Buenos Aires so his stuff is everywhere. Happy reading!

  • Fantastic -- I'll give it a shot. I appreciate the suggestion.
