"This is outsider art writ large. It's a history of worl wars and an elegy for an age lost amid the trenches of Somme and the mechanized bureaucratic death of Buchenwald. A meditation on Catholic spirituality and Marian mystic traditions wrapped inside a loving ode to Anglo-Saxon mythology and language, The Lord of the Rings is one obscure Oxford don's lifelong singular vistion that somehow set the world on fire."  - Joe

Published: New York Review of Books - October 2nd, 2012

"One of my desert island books, Lucky Jim is both funny and tragic and put Kingsley Amis on the literary map and helped kick off Britain's "Angry Young Man" movement of the 50s. Chock full of booze and smokes, it's like a Catcher in the Rye for the post-collegiate set." - Joe

"For 10 years running, Little, Big by John Crowley has been my favorite book of all time.  The story of a family and its tight knit circle of friends and their strange little religion, it is the only book that once I finished it, I immediately re-read.  Yes, it is a fantasy novel, but more than that it's literature with a capital L.  You will love this book, I promise." - Joe

Published: Penguin Books - May 31st, 2004

"No question, the best novel I've ever read.  Dostoevsky described Anna karenina as 'flawless.'  I couldn't agree more. When reading, I felt so incredibly connected to the characters.  Tolstoy understands women and their feelings, thoughts, actions, etc., so astonishingly accurately it's unbelievable; it's as though he were a woman himself.  Tolstoy constantly addresses the reader to better themselves as he illuminates the deepest and rawest questions on how to live and find joy." - Sarah B.

"Thank god Kafka's work wasn't burned upon his death, as requested. Kafka's work is a body of claustrophobia caused by oppressive bureaucracy that his protagonists can never understand. Kafka was a genius; his style, very much informed by the language of bureaucracy, is unmatched." - Andrew H.

"This was the very first book I purchased from a school book fair and I remember I got it because I thought the cover looked funny. Little did I know of the hilarity that was about to ensue. From the wacky table of contents to the Little Ren Hen making fun of the "ISBN guy" on the back and everything in between. I still have my copy that I bought over 20 years ago." - Jon G.
