Gern BS: A different kind of 'GREAT BOOK' thread. (127* d) RE: BS: A different kind of 'GREAT BOOK' thread. 20 Jul 03

Hunter Thompson works for me--I agree with "Confederacy of Dunces" as well. Good travel writers like Peter Mathiessen and Jonathan Rabin can consume entire weekends for me. I'm reading Thurston Clarke's "Equator" right now, and enjoying the ride. Musical biographies also wrap me up for days at a time: Time White's "Catch a Fire" about Bob Marley, Bergren's "Louis Armstrong: An Extravegant Life," Ian Carr's "Miles Davis", even "Ladies and Gentlemen, Lennie Bruce." And, embarassingly enough, good sports writers like Roger Angell and Roger Kahn's "Boys of Summer." You could lose yourself for a few minutes with "Legends of the Toronto Blue Jays." Good luck and happy reading!
