“This is one of the cruelties of the theatre of life; we all think of ourselves as stars and rarely recognize it when we are indeed mere supporting characters.”
Here’s my list so far:
The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury
Notes of a Dirty Old Man by Charles Bukowski
The New Kings of Nonfiction by Ira Glass
American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis
The Manticore by Robertson Davies
I read Fifth Business over winter and loved all the mythical elements + the old time-y feel. Any other suggestions?
