i love chuck klosterman books.
they are pop culture-y if you're into that sort of thing. funny, laugh out loud funny books. but...smart funny.
killing yourself to live: it's about him traveling across the states for spin magazine going to places of famous deaths in rock and roll. and his adventures on the way.
sex, drugs, cocoa puffs- just a series of essays about random topics like...he starts playing sims and makes a sim him and tries to sort out his life that way, or an entire chapter about saved by the bell.
they are just interesting books, but they are sorta a required taste.
also...she's come undone by wally lamb, because it's a good book. if you haven't already any of these.
