    BOOKS V.200

    Discussion started by fr8lover - Mar 27, 2003

    i just finished AMERICAN SKIN by Don DeGrazia. really good narrative about a kids life, basically. falling in with non-racist skins in chicago and growing up and stuff after that. amazing book. one of the kind you really cant put down for the life of you.

    im 1/2 way through with WHITEOUT: LOST IN ASPEN by Ted Conover. people on the board mightve read ROLLING NOWHERE about him riding trains around for a couple years. this book isnt as exciting as that, or his book about being a prison guard in sing sing (NEWJACK) or following illegal immigrants (COYOTE). its a decent read about life in aspen, nothing more really.

    ive started reading AGE AND GUILE: BEAT YOUTH, INNOCENCE, AND A BAD HAIRCUT which is a 25 year anthology of some of P.J. O'Rourke's articles and writing. its fucking hilarious, and really on point politically. the guy is one of my writing idols for his way of putting comedy into important issues...

    what are you reading?
