The Best of The Week

Summer reading. Had me a blast.

The Other Night at Quinn's (2018)- Mike Faloon: Improvisational prose recounts fragments of a man's life through visits to/reviews of a small bar on jazz night. Interesting, though not for everyone. On one page, someone references the Nihilist Spasm Band, locally legendary. The son of one member lives on my street. The person quoted misidentifies them as a "Toronto band." Sure, close enough.

The Boys of Fairy Town: Sodomites, Female Impersonators, Third-Sexers, Pansies, Queers, and Sex Morons in Chicago's First Century (2018)- Jim Elledge: Any book with "sex morons" in the title recommends itself. An interesting peak into Chicago's underlit corners. Hidden history often hides in plain sight.

Last Night at the Telegraph Club (2021)- Malinda Lo:…
