Here's a list that gladdens. What Youth and "7 books you will psyche on and should totally read."
I often bemoan the fact that good writing is a dying art. It ain't necessarily true but it sometimes feels that way. The yoof, it always seemed to me, could buy a Canikon for a couple hunge, flood the 'net with images, and call 'emselves artists - easy! But unlike photography there's no shortcut to good writing: no autofocus, no colour correcting software - it's hard fucken work. And the first step toward it is to read lots and lots of great writers. So yeah, glad to see the yoof - What Yoof! - spruiking seven good books. Bit limited in scope and style but a good list nonetheless.
Let it go Lil’ Cryp.
Start the year off fresh.
Thanks for the heads up on 'Scrublands', GF.
Up until recently I was never without a book. I'm sad to say the internet has really curbed my reading.
This year I resolve to read more.
Has anybody read 'Perfume' by Patrick Suskind? I heard it's pretty good.
Watashi wa metabo oyagi desu.
Excellent book that one, Zen.
Good NY resolution too.
Same here , Zen.
I would only read 10percent of offline content compared to what I used to . Sad. A few months without regular internet last year was a dream .
Perfume is a great book.
But the movie is a stinker...
A long and excellent and essential piece by Bruce Pascoe. Great voice, great writer.
I’ve not read Dark Emu , but I’ve heard mention of the accounts of indigenous houses within it. Anyone ever encountered a traditional aboriginal house or evidence or remnants of , in their travels ?
Have read Biggest Estate by Gammage. This is next on my list.
