A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

Trust me, I read all the time, and will be done with this in 2 days. None of your horseshit.

Last Exit To Brooklyn is a good book. Selby also wrote another one I am a fan of, and the title is escaping me.

Vineland by Pynchon.

That guy is a complete madman. I know he's gotten love from this forum and it's clear why.

just finished clash of the fundamentalisms by tariq ali. it's a really good description of how the west has supported the rise of islamasists across the globe as a bulwark against communism, among other things.

I'm completely hooked on this book. Whenever I have any downtime I think about (reading) it. Haven't had a book do that to me in awhile.

Supposed to be all true... It almost all takes place in Chicago in the late 19th century and is actually quite a good history book as well.

I was going to start my own thread about this, but I'm reading Cunt by Inga Muscio. I haven't read a better book about the vagina in my life. I'm only about halfway through, but this book has already changed my outlook on life for the better.

Such a dope book.

One of the best parts is how she compares the "vagina" to a type of car.

"You seen the new Chrysler Vagina?"

But you know...a cunt is a hurricane, not a squall.
