The End is Near

My very favorite genre, and I haven't read the three books Ron Currie Jr. recommends to help me enjoy the apocalypse. Read them? I hadn't even heard of two of them...can you guess which two?

Hmmmm. I'm pretty confident you've heard of Kurt Vonnegut! So ...

That George Saunders is a very very funny satiric skewering writer. I've read his second story collection, Pastoralia, but never gotten around to his first. DFW was very high on it when it first came out, I think, in '95 or so. He mentioned it in his Salon interview w/Laura Miller, and he raved about it. Saunders has yet to write a novel; just shorts.

I don't know anything about go-go's. :(
