Ken Kesey - Sometimes a Great Notion (1964)

a challenging read (is it possible?); a real struggle of a ride (Kesey wrote a second masterpiece?); you'll laugh and maybe cry but by the time you get through, iffn you make it through, you'll never forget the journey (is the great American novel still relevant at all?).

Black Reconstruction in America (1935) by W.E.B. Du Bois

Though it took me months and was at times a more difficult read, in terms of density, thoroughness, archaic language, and sadness of subject matter than anything I've read before, Du Bois' masterpiece is more relevant today than it has any right to be, than anyone would want it to be, probing the deepest of philosophical nerves while remaining rooted, all the while, in impeccably researched history.
