You have to admit there is something missing in male writers. Something lacking. It's why they're so predictable, so robotic, so inhuman. Now there are exceptions of course like George Eliot, but most male writers are pretty tedious and artificial.

my advice is to start with the Russians, because you are an English speaker.
Let me explain myself.

French, Spanish and German literature have long traditions with many classics, but you may want to learn one of those languages in the future, and reading them in their language is better than reading them in a translation.

English literature is great, but it is also huge, it would be an "I dont know where to start from" problem.

You, like almost all westerners, like almost all the planet, will never learn Russian. So start with the translations of the Russian classics, like Crime & Punishment, Anna Karenina, War and Pace, Karamazov brothers.
And after Tolstoi and Dostoievsky, you can read the other great, but not as great writers, Gogol, Pushkin and Chekhov.

I didnt have a whole of friends and good social skills till I got a part time job in high school. I worked as cashier for a couple years, and being forced to talk to people nonstop for 6 hours straight sucked, but it helped tons.

did you even read the post on rowling that started this discussion? yes, they're all technically adults, but what I meant is scifi or fantasy genre fiction not aimed at children. only one is even a fantasy author, and, while Tolkien's reinterpretation of mythology, conlang construction, and contextual linguistic knowledge are all noteworthy, and he was a skilled translator, his more popular work is transparent male power fantasy; the Scouring of the Shire, for instance, is reactionary garbage. His obscurer stuff is more of a worldbuilding guide than anything else. It's a really cool worldbuilding guide with a lot of great stuff, but can you really be surprised that Tolkien's best dealt with his languages and concepts when that's where he put his time? The stories are ancillary! Tolkien was not a good author.

okay salonfriends I have a question for you.


alright. finished the book you recced. light exploration of effort and futility with terse prose; nothing special.

one thing I didn't get. why is the old man a guy? it's just kind of arbitrary-seeming and doesn't add anything to the story. his wife is dead, and he's just fishing to prolong his own lonely existence and projecting onto somebody else's child, without any kind of community. it just seems like such a men's studies book, you know? his failure is sad and his struggle is noble in its own way, but I don't get why his masculine pride is so glorified, especially since he continues to live on his own and fish alone, boy aside, for no reason. people clearly care for him, since they give him newspapers and free meals.

it just kind of left a dry taste in my mouth is all. hopefully this'll help me open up a conversation.

am I missing something?
