Feels odd to admit this... but while reading The Bell Jar, I had to read it sporadically and without intensity.  Hit too close to home I guess.  The mind is so fragile...  and Plath captured that all too well.
Classic.

At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.

CHOKE


(Does anyone know any authors similar to Palahniuk?  I'm in a Palahniuk frenzy lately, I need more Nihilism (and no I don't mean Nietzsche nihilism))
"As a matter of fact I only work with the feeling of something magical, something seemingly significant. And to keep it magical I don't want to know the story involved, I just want the hypnotic effect of it somehow seeming significant without knowing why." - Len Lye

budgie recommended to me Chemical Pink by Katie Arnoldi, which is somewhat in same vein as a Palahniuk book.

Paul Auster's New York Trilogy
more than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. one path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. the other, to total extinction. let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
