Pulphead: Notes from the Other Side ...
(Paperback)
John Jeremiah Sullivan
 
I was totally blown away by this collection of the new new new journalism, or however many "news" we’re up to these days. I think I like it as much – at times, even more – than Foster Wallace’s A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never do Again. And that, for me, is saying a lot.

The Complete Psychological Works of...
(Paperback)
Sigmund Freud
Freud can be read as literature. The case of Little Hans is memorable and reminds us of the theatrical nature of the Freudian enterprise. Freud wrote up relatively few cases, but they provide a remarkable insight into the world of one of the towering figures of modern times.

Ringolevio: A Life Played for Keeps
(Paperback)
Emmett Grogan; Peter Coyote
Not technically a music book, but includes wonderfully evocative passages about the Diggers and the original Haight Asbury scene. By some distance the best book about the original hippie "vibe".

Random Family: Love, Drugs, Trouble...
(Paperback)
Adrian Nicole LeBlanc
 
I've been meaning to read this one for a decade. It’s described in a blurb as "A non-fiction Middlemarch of the underclass" – I don’t think I can do much better than that. Concerning a large, chaotic family in the Bronx during the 1990s, it’s an honest account of street life – from drug dealing to child-rearing. Ms LeBlanc spent ten years embedded, interviewing, living with her subjects, listening to them. An extraordinary feat of research and patience. Reading it you are realize that class is a cocoon and you have absolutely zero idea how anybody else is living. I think this book is a masterpiece.

The Bible: Authorized King James Version
(Paperback)
Robert Carroll; Stephen Prickett
 
I figure that I (faithless grandchild of a Methodist preacher) should be familiar with the foundation myths which inform our society so fundamentally. The language is epic, magnificent.

(Paperback)
Sebastiao Salgado
 
This was one of the main sources of inspiration in my years as a young, aspiring, student photographer. Having recently discovered the language of (predominately black&white) reportage photography, I was in awe of Salgado's ability to deal with the lives and livelihoods of workers around the world with such compassion and celebration.
