perp, so far i've read 2 of his books.
IV: A Decade of Curious People and Dangerous Ideas its a bunch of his previously published essays. he covers everything from britney spears to led zepplin. pretty good read.
Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story (description stolen from amazon): Klostermanfollows up on 2003's Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs by expanding on an article he wrote for Spin about driving cross-country to visit several of America's most famous rock and roll death sites, from the Rhode Island club where more than 90 Great White fans died in a fire, to the Iowa field where Buddy Holly's plane crashed. Along the way, Klosterman opines on rock music, never afraid to offend—as when he interprets a Radiohead album as a 9/11 prophecy or reminds readers that before Kurt Cobain's suicide, many preferred Pearl Jam to Nirvana. The quest to uncover these deaths' social significance is quickly overwhelmed by Klosterman's personal obsessions, especially his agonizing over sexual relationships.
i started with killing yourself to live and its good. i also hear sex, drugs and coco puffs is good as well. i'm prolly gonna read that one next. i'd start with one of those 2.
