"Who killed Boy Staunton?"
White Noise by Don DeLillo
It's a terribly funny book, and the prose is as beautiful as a sunset through a
particulate-filled sky. Nice-guy narrator Jack Gladney teaches Hitler Studies at a small
college. His wife may be taking a drug that removes fear, and one day a nearby chemical
plant accidentally releases a cloud of gas that may be poisonous....
Sister Carrie by Theodor Dreiser
Sister Carrie, Theodore Dreiser's revolutionary first novel, was published in 1900. It tells the story of Carrie Meeber, an 18-year-old country girl who moves to Chicago and becomes a kept woman, was strong stuff at the turn of the century, and what Dreiser's wary publisher released was a highly expurgated version. Times change, and we now have a restored "author's cut" of Sister Carrie that shows how truly ahead of his time Dreiser was.
We owe 1902's The Hound of the Baskervilles to Arthur Conan Doyle's good friend Fletcher "Bobbles" Robinson, who took him to visit some scary English moors and prehistoric ruins, and told him marvelous local legends about escaped prisoners and a 17th-century aristocrat who fell afoul of the family dog. Doyle transmogrified the legend: generations ago, a hound of hell tore out the throat of devilish Hugo Baskerville on the moonlit moor...
The grandfather of grunge... A legend.

Paul Alexander - Boulevard of Broken Dreams: The Life, Times, and Legend of James Dean
40 years after his death, James Dean remains an icon of American pop culture. Dean, Paul Alexander claims, "brought something new to sex--an ambiguity, an openness, an androgyny that had not been there with other Hollywood stars." Boulevard of Broken Dreams explores the personal struggles of the powerful actor and explains how Dean's sexual ambivalence and hidden homosexuality affected his life and made him such a believable on-film rebel.
