what makes for better winter-core, something comfy and warming or something unsettling and cold that reminds you of the weather

Mason and Dixon

"Snow-Balls have flown their Arcs, starr'd the Sides of Outbuildings, as of Cousins, carried Hats away into the brisk Wind off Delaware,-- the Sleds are brought in and their Runners carefully dried and greased, shoes deposited in the back Hall, a stocking'd-foot Descent made upon the great Kitchen, in a purposeful Dither since Morning, punctuated by the ringing Lids of Boilers and Stewing-Pots, fragrant with Pie-Spices, peel'd Fruits, Suet, heated Sugar,-- the Children, having all upon the Fly, among rhythmic slaps of Batter and Spoon, coax'd and stolen what they might, proceed, as upon each afternoon all this snowy December, to a comfortable Room at the rear of the House, years since given over to their carefree Assaults."

hey Guys, i have a great Idea: let's capitalize every Noun. that totally won't have a negative, diluting Effect on the Impact it could have.

In the winter, cold and unsettling to remind you of the weather. In the summer, cold and unsettling to remind you that such is man's fate.

I have it.
I doubt I'll ever read all of it page by page, but I like picking it up and just continuing from where I was last time.
Strangely it's sort of my "light" read after I've finished another work and before I've figured out the next read.

In other words, it's really good, and in some weird way super comfy. Which sounds weird considering it's written by a lonely, slightly reclusive, borderline depressed professor rambling about depression.

This is the Steinbeck year for me. I discovered him only in march with The Grapes. Since then, I read EoE, Travels with Charley, Cannery Row and M&M. Now I open this thread to get a break from him, and I find this. I checked it and am immediately drawn to it.
It's weird. Never experienced that with another author.

If you liked grapes of wrath i can guarantee you'll love winter of our discontent, it's hands down my favorite novel. I also had a Steinbeck year some years ago, read about everything he created, the only author I could follow and love in all his works.

Piggybacking off this, this is pretty comfy, at least the first hundred pages or so. Something about Gass' prose which is enchanting

@TreeEater
the first 100 pages or so are comfy
the first 100 pages are the worst in the entire book
he deliberately deployed the modernist tactic of making the opening dense and awful
Still one of my favourites tho

Steinbeck is one of the great American writers, no doubt. Wish he was mentioned on here more.
