Erggy,

Try Confederacy Of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole.

Definitely read Madame Bovary. Flaubert is, in the words of a friend, "tits."

OH! you should read "The Third Spring" by Dr. Adam Schwartz, an old professor of mine. He's awesome so his book should be cool.

Confederacy of Fools... that's the one about some political shit, and Bush.. I remember seeing it at Borders, and confused it with Confederacy of Dunces.

And yet, it doesn't seem like my "type" of book... a farcical comedy? Hmm... nah.
