chutneyfarmer said:My current reading is Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk. Enjoying it so far but I haven't been able to read too much of it coz I've been busy this week. Didn't realise that is was basically stories within a story, which is pretty cool.

Shit, I only just saw your post. I dunno; I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas YEARS ago and I loved it at the time. The Proud Highway is a completely different book: where Fear and Loathing was semi - if not totally - fiction, Proud Highway is real letters he wrote to friends, lovers, publishing houses, newspapers etc. He still comes across as a tear-away, but a lot more of a senstive sort and not quite such a looper. Proud Highway shows how he got to be the writer he was.chutneyfarmer said:Saw this in work the other day. Thinking of picking it up. Should I get some of his other books first though?
I love PE too, though I only read it when I'm taking flights. My Dad has every copy bar about 3 of them.spiritualtramp said:Read The Secret Diary of John Major (aged 47¾) last night which was gas. The Dear Bill letters are in the post to me. I love getting Private Eye publications for 99p on Ebay. .|..|
