I've always wanted to read something by Irvine Welsh. His stuff looks rather depraved. But I don't really know. Every time I pick up a book by him, the cover tells me to put it back.

ps on second thought, if you are looking for something of more literary value (this is not a great book or anything, just a bit scandalous), i could suggest

-justine by the marquis de sade
-les chants de maldoror by lautrEamont
-histoire d'o by pauline r#age
(nobody does depravity like the french, he he)

have fun.

I don't know where I got the R.K. from. There is no famous person named R.K. I am terrible witch names.

The books are great. Guess you have to spend more time on the board...

I was so into R.L. Stine in the 2nd/3rd grade. The Werewolf of Fever Swamp is the best Goosebumps book.

Oh man I read that one. I loved those. I stopped reading them when they got to Beast from the East - I remember it was the last one I read. But Welcome to Dead House scared the shit out of me. I remember I lost my copy of Why I'm Afraid of Bees and was really sad for like a month, because I couldn't find it for sale anywhere. The Cuckoo Clock one was my favorite.

I heard they were ranked the most poorly written books or something. They were, now that I look back. Except Dead House.

Wasn't that the one where time kept repeating, or something? And the main character had to relive it all?

Ya, something about him turning the cuckoo's head upside down and time went backwards. Every morning he woke up a couple years younger and finally when he was one year old or something, his mom took him to the store where they sold the clock and he got it back. I don't remember exactly.

I must have read 2/3 of those up to #43

I concur; although, the two essential documents of depraved literature are 120 days of Sodom by de Sade and Venus in Furs by Leopold von Sacher Masoch. The latter is beautiful, the former is frankly awful, but very sick. I would add George Bataille's 'the story of the eye' or anything of his literary stuff... there's a book with three of his short stories in that comes highly recommended - Madame Edwarda, My mother, the Dead man. Madame Edwarda is outstandingly wrong. As is my mother. Yeah. I think the book club should read Bataille. He's beautifully wrong.

I might be mistaken, but I think you're wrong. '32 STORIES: the complete OPTIC NERVE mini-comics' presents the original seven Optic Nerve comics, his early work he started drawing in high school; these were drawn before he signed the deal with Drawn & Quarterly and became known to a bigger public. They're extremely rare and are presented in this single volume. The 10 Optic Nerve comics from D&Q, that are also bundled in Sleepwalk and Summer Blonde, are successors to these 'mini-comics'.

Be it as it may, they're all worth the read. And I love how the reader's comments (be they fictional or non-fictional) in the D&Q Optic Nerves are in fact pretty similar to the stories Tomine reveals. They work beautifully together. Furthermore, I love how Tomine merely sketches out possible situations, without complete storylines, that leave a reader behind on his own with a vivid sense of emotion.

I hear you. Have you seen the Art & Beauty magazines? Love them. [Faits divers: I was able to track down some of the images he drew those portraits from.] And you must see the T. Zwigoff documentary on the Crumb household if you haven't already.

'Le bleu du ciel' by G. Bataille is in my heart. A woman named Dirty; portrait of the Interbellum state of mind. Can it get any more real than this?

Trying to read the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and it's kind of boring. I like some of the ideas the Pranksters have, but I'm not to interested in a bunch of hippies and beatniks taking drugs.

Next, though, and more interesting, I plan on reading either Turgenev - Fathers and Sons or Ayn Rand - Atlas Shrugged. I'll probably read the latter first.

I kind of want to read Atlas Shrugged, but I heard that it hammers the idea of Objectivism into the readers ad nauseam, because she didn't feel Fountainhead did a good job of it. Sounds like it would be a bit tedious if that's true. I've always kind of shied away from it. If I take on a book that big, I have to really want to read it.

True. I happened upon it in a used bookstore and figured why not? so I got it.
I have no idea of objectivism and I haven't read Fountainhead (this will be my first book by her), so it might not be so nauseating.

Hah on second thought, to be honest I don't really understand objectivism myself. So perhaps I should read it. Of hers I've only read The Anthem, which is under 100 pages. Excellent book. But the descriptions I've heard of her philosophy seem really contradictory, so I don't know if it's selfish or selfless. But anyway, I suppose I should add it to my list of books to read. I'll be on it in a couple decades. I say go for it.
