Hello all. Ive posted as DB Cooper at the World Literature Forum for quite some time. Found this forum by sheer chance and it appears to have intelligent discussion of literature with many knowledgable members, also there appears to be quite a bit of overlap with the posters at WLF. So here I am! If you are curious and have any questions, feel free to ask, but as my username suggests I do enjoy a veil of internet privacy to a degree. I guess, in summation, I like books.

Hmm, five favorite? This list is ever shifting and changing, depending on the day (hour) you ask me. So here is my top five, for this hour at least:

Roberto Bolano- 2666 also The Savage Detectives
Vladimir Nabokov- Lolita
Julio Cortazar- Hopscotch
Franz Kafka- The Castle
Mario Vargas Llosa- The War At The End Of The World
William T Vollmann- The Rainbow Stories
Cormac McCarthy- Blood Meridian

More than five but oh well. Probably should be something by Pynchon in there too, but I had to stop listing sometime. Infinite Jest could sneak in there some days, and if Im feeling contrarian so would The Kindly Ones

Never read Fuentes or Crowley, but I have had Little, Big tucked away on my Amazon wishlist for some time.

you should also look into the Aegypt series.
Actually that is on my wishlist also, but I didnt realize it was a series. Hmm, sounds interesting.
