Book Review | 'Invisible,' by Paul Auster - The New York TimesThe prose is contemporary American writing at its best: crisp, elegant, brisk. It has the illusion of effortlessness that comes only with fierce discipline. As often happens when you are in the hands of a master, you read the next sentence almost before you are finished with the previous one. The novel could be read shallowly, because it is such a pleasure to read. One leaves the text and feels that one has been left with nothing. The irony vacuums out the content and, with it, our interest. Like the ouroboros, the ancient symbol of a dragon swallowing its own tail, the book consumes itself, and disappears.
MADE MY LITTLE SISTER DISAPPEAR (FUNNY)
Readers on sibling bullying: My tormentor was there every day . . . waiting
They are on a weeklong drive from their home in San Francisco to a family reunion in Colorado Springs, and as temperatures rise, so do tempers. As little kids charge unsupervised through the house and adults exist in a separate realm of arguing, Raina tries to revive her relationship with her cousins after years without them. Although her extended family is friendly, Raina never quite feels included or comfortable. With the help of a Walkman and some cassette tapes, she manages to disappear into her own world. Telgemeier uses her expressive, cartoon-style drawings to bring context and emotion to the minimal text, which is almost entirely dialogue. I love her work, not because it is exotic or unusual, but because she writes stories we have all lived, and tells them in a way that feels uncomfortable yet transcendent. But that is life.

Recently, The Irish Times published a series of articles about sibling bullying. The articles provoked a strong reaction from readers — many of whom were keen to share their own experiences of sibling bullying. Unfortunately, we cannot publish all the submissions, but here are a sample from our readers. My brother, who is four years my senior, made my life a living hell. There was just something inside him that he truly despised about me. It became a nagging obsession of my brother to compare his life with mine, demanding I receive no special treatment or attention from my parents. There have been plenty of times when he would barricade me inside my bedroom for the entire day, warning me if I came out he would beat me up.
