Drew I would add War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning by Chris Hedges


message 2: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Is David Foster Wallace really a journalist?

It's on page 2.


message 4: by Joseph (new)

Joseph wow, I didn't see that this list really took off. Thanks to everyone for all the additions and for making my "to read" shelf that much longer. sheesh!! Lobstergirl, admittedly I don't know that much about Foster Wallace, but what constitutes a journalist? That can be perma-debated but for a working definition let's stick with astute observers of the human condition who seek to expound upon or influence society in some way. Fair?


message 5: by Joseph (new)

Joseph Kiens wrote: "Great list Joseph!"

thanks!


message 6: by Joseph (new)

Joseph thinking back on my last comment, perhaps the definition is too broad. let's just stick with people you consider journalists, and that goes for everyone. haha.


message 7: by Booklovinglady (new)

Booklovinglady I'm not quite sure, but I think Truman Capote was a journalist.
