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.

MetaMAUS
(Hardback)
Art Spiegelman
 
I thought that my generation was doing pretty well following Art's example of how to make serious comic books for adults, but this book demonstrates just how pale and paltry our efforts have been; via interviews, documents, photographs and preparatory sketches (and an interactive DVD) it's clear that Art not only created the graphic novel, but that graphic novel may also never be bettered.

A hefty book about Anglo-American diplomacy during the American civil war. It sounds daunting, but is a brilliant piece of exposition and story-telling.

Tom-All-Alone's
(Paperback)
Lynn Shepherd
 
Reading The Solitary House will make you grateful for contemporary plumbing. In between these pages you’ll be right in the thick of all the grime and gristle of 1850s London with sleuth Charles Maddox. It isn’t often a pretty sight, but it is a captivating one. Referencing Dickens and Wilkie Collins, this novel a special treat for book nerds like me.

Catch-22

It
(Paperback)
Stephen King
Possibly my favourite book of all time. Huge, sprawlingly ambitious, terrifying and at times horrifically violent, but with an absolutely huge heart. For me, King is THE finest writer of children of his generation, and this is him at the height of his powers – the Losers’ Club are a marvel of characterization, caustic, funny, brave and loyal to each other. They’re completely real and identifiable to everyone, and you follow them incredibly willing into the darkness at the heart of the story.

Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson...
(Paperback)
Tove Jansson
Specifically the story called 'The Spring Tune' - the best description I've read about the elusive nature of the tunes that we carry around in our heads & how we must be careful as to how & when we try to 'harvest' them. All songwriters need to read this story.

Less Than Zero
(Paperback)
Bret Easton Ellis
To be honest, I could have put American Psycho, Glamorama and Lunar Park in this list as well – I’m a huge Easton Ellis fan. But since I thought I’d better keep it to one, it had to be Less Than Zero – I don’t think any novel has ever affected me more than this classic account of empty, soulless twentysomethings drifting through a drugs, sex and booze-addled Christmas in LA. The writing is so spare and clean and empty, and the content so bleak and painful. It’s just an absolute masterpiece.

Going Solo
(Paperback)
Roald Dahl
As with Easton Ellis, I could have put any number of Dahl’s novels on this list – The Witches, Matilda, Danny The Champion Of The World – but this second part of his autobiography (which started with Boy) is utterly joyous. It’s as fantastic and funny and weird and thrilling as any of his fiction, taking in lions, snakes, fighters planes, deserts, and a cast of characters as eccentric as he’s ever had to play with. It’s completely delightful.
