Is the Sjon the Blue Fox? That's a great little book, albeit more hallucination than book.

Just seen the Lethem. I think I'll go for that.

I'm completely striking out here, but I've thought about reading "Fortress of Solitude" so many times I almost feel like I've read it.

To soothe my ego, I will say that I would've voted for "My Life as a Fake" by Peter Carey if it had been listed.

I gave up on Fortress of Solitude on the chapter written like a Black preacher's oratory.

i had only read the Curious Incident and The Time-Traveller's Wife and while they were both readable I'm pretty sure far better books came out that year. I think I started Fortress of Solitude and didn't get far, though I've enjoyed other Lethem.

first one in decades i'd read none of, which i'm sure means nothing at all

Time Traveler's Wife was one that I thought I enjoyed reading and then realized in retrospect I hated.
