• "Apparently I lack some particular perversion which today's employer is seeking." • A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES • 1980 • JOHN KENNEDY TOOLE •

Confederacy of Dunces, John Kennedy Toole. Insanely entertaining and funny. Some of the best dialogue I've ever read. Prompted me to get my ass to New Orleans, and have been a regular ever since.

• "Am I sorry? If that's what you mean - I'm not. I don't feel anything about it. I wish I did. But nothing about it bothers me a bit. Half an hour after it happened, Dick was making jokes and "I was laughing at them. Maybe we're not human. I'm human enough to feel sorry for myself." • IN COLD BLOOD • 1966 • TRUMAN CAPOTE •

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. If you've ever taken a journalism class, you've probably read Truman Capote's seminal nonfiction book about a murder in a quiet town, "In Cold Blood." It's a classic for a reason. Everyone should read it.
