I had to abandon Naked Lunch about 50 pages in. I felt bad for 2 minutes, but now i'm glad i did. I guess I have to draw the line somewhere. Burroughs = my line. I'm considering doing this with Rabbit, Run as well (I read it years ago, and can't find the stamina to finish all 300 pages) Patience growing shorter as my list grows longer, are you having that?
Some short gwendolyn brooks, david foster wallace, angels and in america and some vonnegut might have to tide me over until i can gain some stamina for Call it Sleep and Invisible Man. I already cut the Jungle and any Steinbeck epic novels. The piece of advice i'm gonna tell next year's group--put the big novels first. All of them.
