XFX: 1st Quarter at Experimental Fiction

ma femmeI’m usually more out front of this, which is important since it’s sometimes difficult to get a copy of some of the recommended books. This quarter all the books are relatively new and therefore easy to find. One selection is by a favorite French author; another is by a very successful contemporary author; one is a vision of a digitized future; and the last one has the word “porno” in the title. Sound interesting. I haven’t read any of these novels and past history suggests I will read three of them before the quarter is out. For some reason I always leave off at least one book, although it stays on my current reading list.

So this is the first quarter schedule at XFX. Intrigued?

Interrogation01-16 – The Interrogation — J. M. G. Le Clézio
Snow Crash02-08 – Snow Crash — Neal Stevenson
Circle03-01 – The Circle — Dave Eggers
Salmonella Man03-16 – Salmonella Men on Planet Porno — Yasutaka Tsutsui
