Read: White Tears

This book took a turn. A real turn. Loved the beginning and when the turn came, about midway, I didn’t quite see it coming. Music. Obsession. Collection. Greed. All wound into one well written, tightly wrapped package. “White Tears,” by Hari Kunzru, a Guggenheim winner, is a super story laced with all kinds of things I love. Who doesn’t love audio recorders? Inner-city, deep south, and everything in between. The needle and a spoon. Gated communities and stories that are better off kept to themselves. Get it, read it.

  1. The narrative style in the second half of the book, reminds me of Burroughs. The author couples a unique narrative style interweaved with America’s complicated race history. Fortunately, we are left with a book that is hard to put down. A very fine read and recommendation. (Honestly I might need to veg out on Netflix to recover before tackling a new book)
