Kunstler's new book is A History of the Future: A World Made By Hand Novel.
Recently I asked the author about what he was reading. His reply:
I recently finished Laurent Binet’s HHhH — a Novel, which is mostly a fictional account of the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi governor of occupied Czechoslovakia, known as “the Butcher of a Prague.” I say mostly because parts of the book include memoiresque digressions into the novelist’s own past in his struggle to write the novel. I generally don’t like authors getting this cute with breaking the envelope of dramatic form, but Binet is a winning voice and his artistry allows him to pull off the stunt. I enjoyed the book hugely. It is translated from the French.Visit James Howard Kunstler's website.
I am now reading Hilary Mantel’s Bring Up the Bodies, sequel to her 2009 novel Wolf Hall about the court intrigues surrounding Henry VIII’s romance with Ann Boleyn — as told through eyes of Henry’s chamberlain Thomas Cromwell. The sequel is about Boleyn’s downfall. Mantel’s powerful and original narrative skills interest me as much as the story itself. She’s a writer’s writer.
