I didn't really enjoy On the Road much, so I might wait a while before reading more Kerouac. Thank you, though.

>>7609541
This looks interesting, almost like a German Vonnegut. Is that a fair comparison?

>>7609552
I have already read Cuckoo and enjoyed it. Someday I might read Kesey's other novel. Your other two suggestions look good, and are ones I haven't considered before.


I was planning on reading Steppenwolf next, but I might go with one of your guys'. Regardless, they've all been added to my 'someday' list. Thanks!

I'm catching up with post-war German literature right now.

Die Blechtrommel - G. Grass
Ansichten eines Clowns
Billard um halb zehn - H. Böll
>>
>>7608976
1. The "United States" collection of essays by Gore Vidal.
2. "The Battle for Spain" by Anthony Beevor.
3. "Lucky Jim" by Kingsley Amis.

I know next to nothing about post-war german literature for the person above, but I suspect you might like "The Berlin Stories" by Christopher Isherwood. They give a slightly fictionalised but generally accurate picture of the Weimar Republic Era Germany, and how the Nazi threat was basically building itself up in the shadow of the period's decadence.
