The Initial Insult | Mindy McGinnis

I‘m not sure how I feel about this book. It was super dark. I think I need to read the second one now to really know what to think. The characters are really interesting. Each of them has something different to break your heart and the book itself is just very bleak. I did not expect it to end the way it did which is probably why I am conflicted on how I feel about it as a whole.

I‘m posting one book a day from my massive collection. No description, no reason for why I want to read it (some I‘ve had so long I don‘t even remember why!). Feel free to join in!

The Raven | Lou Reed, Lorenzo Mattotti

"Panic and anxiety so often in my head
But I had a guardian angel
Who took care of me instead

The champagne cork - the nightlight owl?
A raven and a duck
The seed of pining parents
And your despairing love

I have a guardian angel
I keep him in my head
When I'm alone and become afraid
He saved my life instead"

(A beautiful illustration to this poem/lyric, and I obviously couldn't resist posting with my actual nightlight owl!?)

In 2000, Lou presented a musical, POEtry, based on the works of EAP. In 2003 he released a concept album, The Raven, based on the musical, which I've finally got hold of. It's an amazing amalgam of musical styles: rock, electronic, avant-garde, contemporary classical, soul, with guest artists including David Bowie, Anohni and Laurie Anderson. There are extensive spoken word sections, voiced by Willem Dafoe, Steve Buscemi and Amanda Plummer.
⬇️

Bookwomble In 2011, Lou commissioned illustrator Mattotti to illustrate the book of lyrics, which I can now re-read along with the album: a multisensory experience! Lou's dramatic adaptation of The Fall of the House of Usher is amazing and worth the price of the album by itself. If you love Poe or Lou Reed, you should try to hear this 🖤 #BooksAndMusic 4mo

Mrs. Poe | Lynn Cullen

I have had this on my shelf for some years, and today felt like the right time to start it! Only one chapter in, and I like it so far!

KAO I don‘t always choose a book that has potential be spooky around Halloween, but I did this year. Life events prevented me from reading it quickly—and I only finished today, four days past the end of October. This was a bit darker than I expected, but I liked it overall. 4mo
