The Kenyon Review offered up its holiday reading recommendations today in its December newsletter. You can find my contribution at the bottom of the page.
The books I recommend?
Don DeLillo – The Names
Robert Stone – A Flag for Sunrise
Denis Johnson – Tree of Smoke
I hope you’re sensing a theme, one that isn’t exactly “The Holidays” but is still a lot of fun.
There are some great recommendations from Kenyon Review editors, staff, book reviewers, and contributors, so be sure to check them out. Also, if you haven’t read my review of Christopher Narozny’s Jonah Man in the Fall Issue of Kenyon Review Online, be sure to take a gander over there as well if the mood strikes.
