I'm assuming you've read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas then. If not then that.

.

if not then that? not that then if then.... then if not, not that then.....
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

I guess if you like the whole "writer's memoir passed as novel" type of thing you should read some Bukowski.

Post Office is like a modern Inferno.

Only much funnier.

Generation Kill. It's a raw unbiased look at the war in Iraq from the view of a Rolling Stone reporter imbedded with the US First Recon Marines, the first troops to cross the border. It's funny, serious, sad, and manages to somehow tie all of that together into a great book.

Wait 5 hours
Be accused by the promoter of being late
Get told we have only a 10 minute set
Play pure noise for 10 minutes

Worst and most amusing gig of my life.

Anyone else had this kind of **** happen?!

Dimebag had a worse gig.

Can't believe I forgot this, and
Cat's Cradle


Cat's Cradle is very good as well, although I don't think any of Vonnegut's other books will ever top Slaughterhouse-Five

I've read all of those except for Welcome to the Monkey House, but I own a copy and will probably get around to reading it soon, I only recently finished Player Piano and I was actually quite impressed. It wasn't just a rip off of Brave New World which is what people had told me it was.
