Good reading: Karen's book list!

Many people asked Karen for book recommendations....
Here is her list!

Dear Boulder Pottery Guild folks,
Here are some recommendations of post-1970s novels for you as promised. I like books that push formal boundaries so if you’re not sure that’s your taste, maybe take a look on Amazon or read book reviews before diving in. And please feel free to write me for more suggestions, at <Karen.Jacobs@colorado.edu>. It was really a pleasure to meet all of you. Thank you for welcoming me into your workshop and I hope our paths cross again before too long.

Robert Coover, Pinocchio in Venice (1991), The Public Burning
Mark Danielewski, House of Leaves (2000)
