    Perfume by Patrick Susskind, original, dark, juicy, double whammy climax. The Happy Hooker by Xavier Hollander, funny as hell, no pretension, big bold erect candor. Last Exit To Brooklyn by Hubert Selby,Jr., all the masks torn away hello mirror hello neighbor here I go screaming into the horizon. Myra Breckinridge by Gore Vidal, clever, caddy, hilarious anal deflowering, vicious but hilarious. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, poignant, lonely, trippy descriptions, hopeful prescriptions. The Color Purple by Alice Walker, because it's The Color Purple. A ***** Is Born (((graphic novel))) by Roberta Gregory, bitter, brilliant, *****. Read 'em up yum yum.

  • The Five People You Meet In Heaven - Mitch Alborn

    Redeeming Love - Francine Rivers

    The Tale of Despereaux - Kate Dicamillo

    Anastasia - Stewart

    Great Expectations - Charles Dickens

    These books have taught me alot about the way we treat people in our everyday life. The way we underestimate, stereotype, and make assumptions about people.

    I loved these books. They are in no particular order.

    I recommend one novel to you, and that is "A Clockwork Orange". I love this novel because it details a psychological look at morality. One of its many themes is the distinguishes between Good and Evil. It may off-put you with its violence and just downright terrible things it details. I had to put the book down a couple of times because I just couldn't handle some scenes. However shocking it my be, it uses language to its finest. It may be hard to find (the movie isn't), but all that searching is worth it.
