Two books I read in the last couple days: Got
, by D. Hardboiled street-lit stuff. Here's a brief excerpt:This shit is like a bad dream if you've ever had one, one of those really mindfuckin' ones you get on the nights you don't go to sleep high. That's actually why you always try to go to sleep high--cuz then it's nothing but black space and the sound of your own snoring.
If you like crime fiction or hip-hop music, or authors like Kenji Jasper, Donald Goines or Jim Thompson, you might give dude's books a try.
Another quick read: Michael Pollan's Food Rules
. Less a book and more a set of epigrams, this thin tome lays out most of the gist of In Defense Of Food
in easy snacking format (I think of 'Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much' as more of an amuse-bouche). It's kind of an antithesis to the Eat This Not That
books, which operate from the first premise that you're going to eat a lot of prepackaged convenience foods and stuff from national restaurant franchises. You can read it in half an hour. You can read it again.
