Writings from the House of Leaves


House of Leaves is a dense and cryptic book. This page is my reading journal as I work through it, to record my thoughts and whatever connections I might make so, hopefully, I'll find it a little easier to digest this behemoth. I cannot guarantee the accuracy, sensicality, or sensibility of anything in this page, or whether any theory I present will line up with any other; I am taking up the time-honored tradition of typing down whatever the hell comes to mind, and hoping it makes sense later. House of Leaves always puts me in a rambling mood, after all.
