Book Challenge 4.

Day 01 – The best book you read this year
Day 02 – A book that you’ve read more than 3 times
Day 03 – Your favorite series
Day 04 – Favorite book of your favorite series

Day 4.

My favorite book in my favorite series, and the reason I did not delve into Dennis Cooper yesterday, is mutable - I think it's Try because the main character's zine about sexual abuse is called I Apologize and that is so fucked up, but then I think of what a revelation Period was and how it excited me so much to see a story told like that, about a person vanishing within a narrative because he kept being invoked, dissolved into obsession. Closer really romanced me, and I kept loaning Frisk to people in high school, hoping they would get too scared of me to talk to me again. I think Guide was the one of the five I grasped less and I would rank it still above so many other books.
