The Adderall Diaries: A Memoir of Moods, Masochism, and Murder

"The Adderall Diaries: A Memoir of Moods, Masochism, and Murder"
Tina Estlin Page
In that place where self-analysis, stimulants, and murder meet: psycho killer, qu'est-ce que c'est?

"It is often easier to confess to a capital crime, so long as its sentences sing and its features rhyme, than to admit you like to fondle-off into a bottle." William H. Gass

"Stitches" by David Small
Joshua Chaplinsky
A graphic memoir about childhood horrors from the award winning children's author, David Small.

This was suggested by the publisher in a batch recommendation of books that might appeal to readers of The Cult. Since I’m not much of a comic book guy anymore (I collected back when I was a preteen) and I don’t read children’s books, I’d never heard of David Small. Apparently he is a prize-winning author and illustrator. My childhood seems to predate his popularity, so I’m considering myself excused. To be honest, I was lured by the promise of a quick, easy read, and the ever-expanding size of my to read list intimidated me into taking this one on.

Rudy Wurlitzer

"The Novel of Bullshit is dead."
Rob Hart
Rudy Wurlitzer interview on

"The Novel of Bullshit is dead."
Those were the words of praise Thomas Pynchon heaped on Rudy Wurlitzer's debut novel, Nog, published in 1969.
As if that wasn't enough of an endorsement, a few weeks ago I got a copy in the mail.  After scanning the back, I had to read the synopsis out loud to my girlfriend: Nog tells the tale of a man adrift in the American West, armed with nothing more than his own three pencil-thin memories and an octopus in a bathysphere.
I can't remember the last time I've read a synopsis that good, so beautiful in its simplicity. 
The book didn't disappoint.  Wurlitzer's prose meanders wildly but remains imminently readable. It’s a fascinating narrative that challenges your preconceived ideas on how a story can be built.

Leather Maiden

"Leather Maiden" by Joe r. Lansdale
Joshua Chaplinsky
A small town tale of infidelity, blackmail, and skinning people alive. For fans of Twin Peaks and His Girl Friday.

I did it. I popped my Lansdale cherry. I know a people or three that love them some Lansdale, but I had never experienced the man for myself. Unless you count the film Bubba Ho-Tep, which was based on his short story, but that was more like letting Lansdale feel me up in the back of a car. There was also that stage production of By Bizarre Hands, which I saw in a small Long Island playhouse with the man himself in attendance, but I’d consider that third base at the most. Other than that, I swear, I’ve never done this before. This is my first time.

Let The Right One In

"Let The Right One In" by John Ajvide Lindqvist
Joshua Chaplinsky
Bram Stoker meets Ingmar Bergman in this coming of age tale about the (undead) girl next door.

Let the right one slip in

And when at last it does

I'd say you were within your rights to bite

The right one and say, "what kept you so long?"
