On the Road

Jack Kerouac

First published in 1957, this book provides the voice for the Beat generation. Being Kerouac's most famous and popular book, it tells of his travels across America as "Sal Paradise" and his search for self-knowledge. This book defines what it means to be Beat and has inspired every generation since its first publication.



Tenth of December

George Saunders

In these ten short stories, Saunders shows why he is compared to Twain and Vonnegut. Saunders doesn't sacrifice the real life feeling when writing about abduction, suicide, and love. Tenth of December is hilarious, dreamlike, and emotionally piercing, and provides the reader with a new, exciting twist in each story.
