  2. Glamorama, Bret Easton Ellis
    570fd61e 1964 497e a967 f5b9464382e3
    Supermodels become terrorists in a pre-9/11 (i.e. pre-Zoolander) satire.
  3. Savage Night, Jim Thompson
    7be0ac7a 026b 4579 97b3 74a0b07d3e9e
    Insane crime novel, with prose as ragged and desperate as its characters. The narrator is murdered at the end of book; the final sentence cuts of

  10. Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals, Patricia Lockwood
    5cdf433a 7851 46ba ab83 73adc777c464
    I'm not Johnny Poetry, so who knows how these poems stack up against the rest of modern verse. But Lockwood's bawdy inventiveness is like nothing I've ever read. Points too for pumping up Homeland like it was always going to be a thing(might still be, haven't kept up past S1).
