Max of the Millions was on the Weekend Edition this past Sunday recommending some excellent books:
- Ragtime by E.L. Doctorow
- Pastoralia by George Saunders
- East of Eden by John Steinbeck
- One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
- The Adventures and Misadventures of Maqroll by Alvaro Mutis
I’ve read three of the five recommended. I’ve never read any Doctorow and have been wanting to read the Mutis for a while. I even sat and read the first 40 pages at City Lights back in May, but for some reason put it back on the shelf. I can’t remember why I put it back. Seems so stupid to me now.
