    I dont really have a favorite author, I wish I could say I did... well, a lot of Sophocles plays do it for me.. Im a big Antigone and Oedipus fan.. But I do have many favorite books.

    Books I'd recommend: AHWOSG by Dave Eggers, High Fidelity by Nick Hornby, Bodega Dreams by Ernesto Quinonez, Slaughter House Five by Kurt Vonnegut.

    Right now Im reading My Less Than Secret Life by Jonathan Ames. Hilarious memoir. Im stuck on it like glue.

    highly influenced by nietzsche's "human, all too human," william s. burroughs, cormac mccarthy, the poetry of langston hughes and stephen crane (i recommend picking up both of their complete poetry works), henry miller's "quiet days in clichy," jack kerouac, poetry of william carlos williams is amazing, kafka's diaries

    Joseph Heller, I looked for that book for months and finally got it for free @ a flea martket. Does anybody buy their books used? It's really fun hunting books and getting your book for quarters as appose to hard cash.

    Fave author j.d. sallinger
