Aldus Huxley, Brave New World

“Huxley describes a sterilized society where there is no violence and everyone is provided for, a utopian World State. However, Bernard Marx feels something is missing and senses his relationship with a young woman has the potential to be much more than the confines of their existence allow.”

James Joyce, Finnagans Wake

“An experimental novel where Joyce uses a strange polyglot idiom of puns and portmanteau words intended to convey the relationship between the conscious and the unconscious.”

Paul Auster, The Music of Chance

“Compulsive traveler Jim Nashe meets a bitter young itinerant gambler, Jack “Jackpot” Pozzi, who lures him into a losing poker game with two shady recluses, Flower and Stone.”

Jack Kerouac, The Lonesome Traveller

“In this autobiographical work, Jack Kerouac tells the exhilarating story for the restless years of wandering during which he worked as a railway brakeman in California, a steward on a tramp steamer, and a fire lookout on the crest of Desolation Peak in the Cascade Mountains.”

William S. Burroughs, Naked Lunch

“Naked Lunch is the unnerving tale of Bill Lee, addicted to hustlers and narcotics, in his journey from New York to the hallucinatory fantasy world of the ‘Interzone,’ a nightmarish urban wasteland where individual freedom confronts the forces of totalitarianism.”

How Not to Get Rich, Robert Sullivan

“Naked Lunch is the unnerving tale of Bill Lee, addicted to hustlers and narcotics, in his journey from New York to the hallucinatory fantasy world of the ‘Interzone,’ a nightmarish urban wasteland where individual freedom confronts the forces of totalitarianism.”
