These are some of my favorite books. I’ve been a Kurt Vonnegut fan ever since I read Slaughterhouse-five in highschool. Cat’s Cradle, Slapstick, and Jailbird are all books that I want to turn into films one day. Bend Sinister is delightfully disturbing (it has to be disturbing, coming from Nabokov. He’s responsible for Lolita). A Clockwork Orange is one I read after seeing the Stanley Kubrick film.
House of Leaves is a book that I’ve read many times. In fact, it’s the only book that has ever truly frightened me. It inspires pretty much every artistic project I take on. If I can make it reminiscent of House of Leaves, I will do it (EDIT: see project #4).
