Citizen Reader will hold another dual book discussion on Monday, March 30. The books involved this time are The Braindead Megaphone by George Saunders and Dangerous Laughter by Steven Millhauser. The first is essays and the second is stories. You can join in the discussion through commenting to the blog post.
I have finished The Braindead Megaphone. While I thought some of the essays were useless, others were brilliant and even moving. I am glad I stuck with the book. I will try to read the other book by Monday.
Citizen Reader often has pretty tough assessments of popular books. It will be interesting to see how this discussion goes.
