  1. books and authors

    Discussion started by professor poopatronic - May 24, 2002

    ok well there hasn't been any literature topics lately and i'm trying to find new stuff to read so i made this post. i seem to always find myself reading the same authors (which i don't mind, that's why i read them) and i want to see what other people like or would recommend. and so i'm actually contributing, some writers i would recommend include JD salinger, charles bukowski, jack kerouac, kurt vonnegut, ernest hemingway, and many others i'll think of later.

    everything's got to be a popularity contest on here.

    books i've read and would recommend recently:

    American Gods- Neil Gaiman
    The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner- Alan Silitoe
    Bushwacked Piano- Thomas McGuane

    i thought the lonliness of the long distance runner was a song by iron maiden.

    kurt vonnegut is great for literary merit and entertainment. camus' the plague combines disease and philosophy- totally sweet. trying to read joyce's ulysses right now. really interesting but one of the most difficult books in the english language.
