Chuck Klosterman - Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story

What can you say about Chuck Klosterman? The man's grasp of American pop culture in every area is second to none and his accountings in anything from music to sports are well written, engaging and side-splitting. While I usually pick Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs as the gateway to Klosterman's deliciously delightful brain, KILLING YOURSELF TO LIVE is so ridiculously ambitious (a fact he both knows and revels in) that you'll find yourself unable to put the book down as you follow him from New York City to North Dakota and back again, where he visits the sites of various musicians' deaths, painting a brilliant portrait of the people of middle America and the music they love.
