Sorry about this. I didn't notice Frank tagging me.
A Book That Has Changed Your Life: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. If you talk to friends they'll tell you that I like to indulge myself. I have attempted to recreate the opening paragraph to this book, and the contents as a whole, in Vegas on a couple of occasions. Honorable mention: One Knee Equals Two Feet by John Madden.
A Book That I've Read More Than Once: The Catcher In The Rye. When I was young it helped me feel like I wasn't the only kid pissed off all the time. As an adult it reminds me that kids are pissed off all the time. That's an oversimplification of course. Honorable Mention: Watchman by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons.
A Book That Makes You Laugh: Fargo Rock City. Deconstruction and defense for an era and musical genre that often get the short end of the stick. Honorable Mention: Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard.
A Book That Makes You Cry: The 9/11 Commission Report. Much better written than I expected. Say what you want about it, it humanizes the events of that day better than anything I have read on 9/11. Honorable Mention: In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.
Book You Wish You Had Written: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. The best "modern" American novel I have read. A grand historical-fiction about the origin of comics, the people who created them and America in the 20Th century. Honorable Mention: Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller.
Book You Wish Had Never Been Written: The Bible. I know the other religious texts out there have caused some trouble, but has any book ever written been the justification for more misery than the Bible. Honorable Mention: Dianetics by L.Ron Hubbard.
