Bamawalt84 I don't presume to call myself a great literary mind by any stretch, but I can't help but wonder where are Fight Club (or anything by Palahniuk, one of the great satirists of our time), American Psycho (same could be said for Easton-Ellis), The Great Gatsby, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Trainspotting, or Last Exit to Brooklyn? Just because a book is considered hip doesn't mean it isn't a classic. Furthermore, if we are calling The Screwtape Letters a satire, then the far superior Dialogues With The Devil by Taylor Caldwell should be mentioned.


message 2: by Bamawalt84 (new)

Bamawalt84 If the majority of the great satires are from a hundred years ago or better, what does that say about modern literature? I am of the opinion that the latter half of the twentieth century produced great satirical classics that deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as the best of Chaucer, Wilde, Twain, etc.
