books and authors

Discussion in 'Channel Zero' started by professor poopatronic, May 24, 2002.

  1. 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.

    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.
