I am pretentious

Hey, I bought books! A whole slew of them! At Powell's! Partly with the gift certificate Lara gave me! Note: this list illustrates why I will never really be smart, because I mean, WHAT ARE ALL THESE BOOKS? WHAT'S THE SIGNIFICANCE? I DON'T KNOW!!!

Anyway, here's what I got.

Frederick Barthelme, Moon Deluxe: Stories
Julius Caesar, An Account of the Civil War
William Faulkner, Intruder in the Dust
Peter Handke, On a Dark Night I Left My Silent House
James Joll, The Anarchists
Howard Lauther, Creating Characters: A Writer's Reference
Andrew MacDonald (William Pierce), The Turner Diaries
Matt Maranian, Pad Parties: The Guide to Ultra-Entertaining
Denny O'Neil & Neal Adams, Green Lantern & Green Arrow Volume 1
Derek Raymond, A State of Denmark
Alain Robbe-Grillet, The Erasers
Edward Said, Peace and Its Discontents

I feel confident that I am the only person in the history of the world who has bought an Edward Said book and "The Turner Diaries" on the same day.
