Cult Classics: Against the Grain

Alternative to what? In a sea of sameness, the heroes of these cult classics march to the beat of their own drum.

Brautigan, Richard
Trout Fishing in America
Drifting along with the flow of time, spinning in revelatory eddies, or striding against the cultural mainstream, we search for that elusive perfect spot to catch a rainbow.

Kerouac, Jack
On the Road
To go adventuring into the crazy American night, raving like a loon, beatific and untouchable, not searching but finding, in constant motion: this was all.

Palahniuk, Chuck
Fight Club
Can’t sleep? Perhaps it is because you’ve never fully woken up. Tyler Durden has the solution, but brace yourself: this is going to hurt.

Thompson, Hunter S.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo, attorney at law, head out on a trip or two to Vegas, home of the great American hallucination. Buy the ticket, take the ride.

Toole, John Kennedy
A Confederacy of Dunces
Meet Ignatius J. Reilly, the grandiosely repellant bloviating buffoon whose jaw-dropping misadventures prove too much even for New Orleans.

One thought on “Cult Classics: Against the Grain”

  1. I have to be careful where I read A Confederacy of Dunces. I get an unstoppable fit of the giggles every time.
