Books I’ve Enjoyed Recently in Photos

The Lover by Marguerite Duras

The Lover by Marguerite Duras — I’ve said it once, and I will say it again. The French know how to write! This book has been considered the Anti-Lolita. Lolita is my favourite book of all time, so any book that is somehow tied to it will be going straight on my list.

Hating Olivia by Mark SaFranko

Hating Olivia by Mark SaFranko — This book is criminally underrated. It’s also unfortunately difficult to get hold of. I got my copy from Amazon, but there are some on eBay. Mark, the author, follows me on Twitter, and we had an enlightening discussion about the industry.

Roadside Picnic by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky

Roadside Picnic by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky — This book is absolutely fascinating. A totally unique take on the science fiction genre. Aliens have been and gone, but they have left debris behind. These designated zones are their own eco-systems, forbidden to the public. However, there are stalkers who risk their lives by trawling through the debris. This book inspired the Tvarkovsky film, Stalker.
