With available time this year running out to do just about anything, let alone making blog posts, here’s what was going to be a much more robust rundown (a la the music post) of the books that made commutes more bearable and the imagination and intellect a little more fertile in 2008. Time and travel got the best of our dear blogger, so you’re left with a mere abbreviated list of authors and titles. [Note: The book review department here at tirado/thrown resolves to generate a better year in books for you, our dear readers, in 2009.]

  • W.G. Sebald: Vertigo
  • Michelle Aharonian Marcom: The Mirror in the Well
  • Eugenio Trias: La Dispersion
  • Franz Kafka: The Blue Octavo Notebooks
  • Jacques Ranciere: On the Shores of Politics
  • Thomas Frank: The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule
  • Hanif Kureishi: Something To Tell You
  • Martin Heidegger: On Time and Being
  • Kaja Silverman: World Spectators
  • Pedro Angel Palou: Con la Muerte en los Punos
  • Herman Melville: The Confidence Man- His Masquerade
  • Eddie Martinez and Chuck Webster, ZieherSmith Joint Catalog

Best wishes from tirado/thrown for an outstanding 2009! We hope to be posting more in the coming year. Thanks for dropping by and reading!
