This week the question is the following: What is the most difficult literary work you've ever read? What made it so difficult?
That's an easy one. A few years back I read two books, both called Dictionary of the Khazars, by Milorad Pavic. The trick was that one edition of the books was labeled "male" and one was labeled "female," and between the two books everything was the same except for one paragraph. The difficulty came in trying to find the paragraph in question, and that meant reading line for line through both books. The book itself is excellent, but it took so much time to find this one paragraph. In case anyone wants to read it, I won't give away the show, but it was definitely a chore to finish! I suppose I could have cheated, but I just couldn't do it.
