Is there any female author like Hemingway, Bukowski or Wilde with a female protagonist? It should just reveal some personal stuff in it.

Does literature have to have meaning? Can it simply be enjoyable?

I've recently got a glimpse of this novel while visiting a friend. Is it worth reading?

Hey /lit/, I found this board not long ago and began reading again. The problem is I made one of the first authors I read Pynchon. I'm spoiled now, and books I have tried to read since then just aren't enough for me. I recently decided to stop reading As I Lay Dying less than 100 pages in. I don't like the very southern setting, I'm not grabbed by the writing as I was with Pynchon, there aren't enough of those juicy sentences to keep me interested. What can I read now? What is there to read that has that same awesome Pynchonian language? (For reference, I've read Huxley, DeLillo, Flaubert, Nabokov was great, DFW was pretty good and has that same love of language, Wilde, and Marquez but none have been quite as satisfying)

What does /lit/ think about the Dark Tower series? Yes, I know it's Stephen King, but should I feel wrong about the fact that I greatly enjoyed (most) of it?

Isabel Allende has a new book out this year.

Well, it came out in 2011, but it's out in English. The Notebook of Maya. No doubt another family saga done in her very good prose. I already know the answer to this is no, but is anyone getting it?

Are you familiar with Howard Bloom, /lit/?

Arts, Music, Culinary Powerhouses Either/Or: France or Italy

France or Italy? Call it as you see it. If you want to judge them as they exist today, okay. If you want to judge the two on their histories as a whole, okay. If you base your vote strictly on food, architecture, musical traditions, weather, cities, countryside, films, politics, painters--it's all good!

What are your favourite 2011 and 2012 books?

Ebooks and Prices

So /lit/ what's the most you'd be willing to pay for an ebook that's roughly 300 printed pages long and by an author you've never heard of? Also, if you were buying a set of short stories for let's say $2-3, about how many stories would you be expecting? I know in the US people are probably expecting several, but from an author friend of mine I've heard people in the UK are will to buy 1 or 2 stories for $.99

Hey /lit/! Just about to start on this motherfucker. I'm quite looking forward to it. Got the Penguin edition. Is the translation fairly reliable or have I made a mistake by getting this kind? Also can we have a Dostoyevsky/Russian classic literature thread?

How does one use similes well? I ask as often I find them quite irritating or annoying, the worst example I found was 'like that niggling at the back of your teeth, the detective knew he couldn't let the case rest.' Yet, at the same time Moby Dick is one of my favourite books because it is able to use similes so well. Much of the book is encyclopedic yet the use of simile is able to draw out much about life from his descriptions of whale bones or whaling folklore.
