- Deer Hunting with Jesus is a book about America. If you want to understand the Right Wing Crazies from a Left Wing Gun Nut, read this book. Also Bageant's essays are good.
- A Scavenger's Guide to Haute Cuisine is a book about a guy who tries to make food from the original Le Guide Culinare by Escoffier using food he kills, grows, catches, or raises. Pigeon stuffed with oyster, anyone?
- Generation Kill. This is a fine book. Look for Evan Wright's Hella Nation as well.
- I've been pushing this book for ten years at least, so please read it despite the movie: Youth in Revolt is very funny. The follow-ups are OK, with the final one getting close to the original. The movie is nowhere near the book, which has a small cultlike following.
- Traffic is a book about traffic, but it is a lot more than that. I've found myself often quoting it.
