Look At Me

by Jennifer Egan.

Quickie recap: What makes a person visible? Your face? Your identity? Seeing yourself through others? Leaving a mark? How do you become invisible?

Wow. This is cryptic.

Quickie review: Good stuff. Surprisingly good, probably because more than one character is going through an existential crisis, but they connect in vague but interesting ways. I liked this book. I felt a connection to the characters, and not just because of the pseudo-blog component. It was engaging and thinky. I like thinky.

Quickie recommendation: Yeehaw.

**Check it out at the Book Lounge!

I think I'd be ripe for an existentiol crisis...if only I believed they existed.

I can work myself up into an existential crisis dozens of times per day if I'm up to it. :)
