I love you City Lights Bookstore.
Immersive. Transformative. Literature.

Classic Literature for the Ages.
Guilty pleasure #11: Remember when S.E. Hinton was the author of choice for angst ridden, pimply, self-absorbed, isolated, disconnected, disenfranchised, white hetero(?) teens. Fun times!
PS. I still love you Ponyboy and Sodapop.
Christine Vachon’s Shooting to Kill is still one of my all-time favorite books on ultra-low budget, cutting edge, independent filmmaking.
Can someone please explain to me why these pulp-fiction tomes aren’t on the prescribed reading list for EVERY human being!? It’s a Scandal! Outrageous! Unnatural! Erotic! I mean, shouldn’t everyone have to recite Ed Wood Jr’s Killer in Drag word-for-word. Or at least know what ‘The Greek Way’ means? I’m calling the PTA!
“…and they saw the lights going on all over the city, the fireworks, and the great crowds cheering, and plenty to see and plenty to buy everywhere, and amidst all this they felt entitled to walk the streets these two, they felt entitled to stand side by side, to be as remarkable as they were and yet go unremarked.” Neil Bartlett
