    it's summertime, pussies

    i need some good reading. i read AMERICAN GODS by NEIL GAIMAN sometime last year. it was fucking good. last week i bought NEVERWHERE by neil gaiman and it was pretty fucking good, too. this week i've bought STARDUST by neil gaiman and HITCHIKERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY.

    this is the fucking suggest a book thread for this summer... so suggest a book.

    I strongly suggest American Gods.

    neverwhere is a slightly easier and much shorter read.

    I'm reading a compilation... it's called Berlin Noir by Phillip Kerr... it's actually 3 novels, March Violets, The Pale Criminal and A German Requiem.

    The main character is a 'radical thinker' pushed out of the berlin police and into being a private detective.

    Pretty historically straight, the first novel is full of racial epithets that make your toes curl... "got more lip than a nigger with a trumpet"!!! Still, they're all in context and they are very good books... mysteries with alot of reich involvment...

    it's a very well written, twisted book..

    On the Road is great... know that the driver (Neil ? I think... I forget) is also a real person, and also a character with his real name (plus bus driver for the merry pranksters) in Electric Kool Aid Acid Test by Ken Kesey

    *other titles in the Ken Kesey catalog - One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest, Once a Great Notion

    recommended related reading... Brautigan... Confederate General at Big Sur, and, Trout Fishing in America...

    I just started "Narcissus and Goldmund" by Herman Hesse. So far so good...

    I recommend another book by him called "Siddhartha".

    just finishing up drowning in fire by craig womack.. it's alright.. kinda of melodramatic... if anything, it reaffirmed my sexuality, as i didn't pop a boner during the various gay love scenes.

    as for after? im not sure... was thinking about american psycho, farenheit 451 or siddartha.

    the main find last summer was phillip roth's portnoy's complaint... it's pretty funny.
