Go Book Yourself: Dan’s All-Time Top 5 Books

To celebrate hitting 100,000 followers on Tumblr, each of us are posting our five favourite books. Here are Dan’s picks:

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger for the oft-imitated, never bettered story of a teenager fighting against the hypocrisy of adulthood.

A Visit From The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan for a deeply affecting, interweaving collection of stories that show how time catches us all.

The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt for the tragicomic tale of hitmen on the trail of a bounty. Cormac McCarthy meets the Coen Brothers. 

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson for one of the great voices of 20th century literature in his prime.

Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill for a profound, hilarious, and heartbreaking series of dispatches from the front line of a marriage.

Happy Derek Jeter Day!

From the time I was a kid, my dream was always vivid and it never changed: I was going to be the shortstop for the NY Yankees. It started as an empty canvas more than 20 years ago, and now I look at it, it’s almost complete. In a million years, I wouldn’t have believed just how beautiful it would become. 

GOAT.
