Dark Corners of the Book-Related Internet III

Gabe Habash -- December 10th, 2012

Welcome to Dark Corners of the Book-Related Internet, where we distill hours of book-related internet searching into 5 little tidbits we think you’ll love. Have a good week, everyone! And be sure to see previous bookish finds here and here.

1. One of the best articles you’ll read about the link between writers and suicide.

2. Everyone knows Bloomsday is June 16, but what day is Earwickerday, the day on which the events of Finnegans Wake take place? One man has figured it out…using European football records.

3. A partial inventory of Flaubert’s personal effects.

4. A great examination of paranoia through the lens of DeLillo, Pynchon, and Wallace that makes you want to parse (or re-parse) Lot 49, White Noise, and Infinite Jest and ask yourself: Yes, I’m paranoid–but am I paranoid enough?

5. The most hypnotic book you’ll ever see.
