Morg Lorgland's Lockdown-List

These are all the books I read for the roughly 2-3 months of my city's lockdown. Would've liked to have read more but that's alright.
Not all of these were hits. Stinkers include "The Paradoxes of Mr. Pond" (a few of the stories are good and worth reading, but others are unremarkable, badly realized, and vapid, plus any whole *series* of tales about the noxious Pond presenting thoughts with such snide coyness is lamentable), "The Collected Poems of A.E. Housman" (his verse is bad, his sentiments sick), "Hooking Up" (the New Yorker takedown's a blast and Wolfe's history of Silicon Valley is enlightening, but his mischaracterization of Norman Mailer as well as the tendency to repeat any clever Wolfe-coinage ("lurid carnival", anyone?), AND his need to fashion blurry boogeyman out of Communists plus anyone criticizing the country (like Wolfe used to do!) --- creates a tiresome reading session overall).
Favorite out of all of these is either "Bonfire" or "Blue". Which ones're YOURS?
