My Favorite Time of Year:
When NYT Magazine’s Sam Anderson wraps up his year in marginalia:
On Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84:
“Has any author made more fictional phones ring?”
On Joan Didion’s "The White Album":
“People who accuse Didion of being humorless are insane: she’s hilarious, in a v. strange way.”
My own personal copy of Cesar Aira’s Ghosts is full of the check marks, stars, and occasionally the phrase “Zing!”, most often when he digresses on television.
What are the gems from the margins from of your books?
