Fiction Mash-ups
Too much time between now and Saturday night? Be your own DJ, mix the novel you want to read.
  • Slaughterhouse V. - Billy Pilgrim and the Whole Sick Crew search for V. on Tralfamador.

  • On the Road to Perdition - Sidetracked from their quest for revenge, the O'Sullivans call Allen Ginsburg and roll to Monterey. (snaps)

  • Middlesex and the City - Candace Bushnell needs to tell you something....

  • The Name of the Rose that Grew from Concrete - An English monk solves murder mysteries in an Italian abbey by navigating an ancient, labyrinthine library and finding... Tupac?

  • Do Androids Dream of Electric Kool-Aid Acid Tests? - A hole is hollowed out of the book so that you may discretely store your recreational drug of choice.

  • The Bell Jar Curve - Intractable depression turns out to be a class function spurred by bad statistics.

  • A Room with a View of One's Own - Required for V. Woolfe's senior finishing school seminar.

  • Crime and Discipline and Punishment - Newest from the authors who brought you the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.
Go ahead, try your hand. From your pointy-headed friends at Crooked Timber (John Holbo took some really good ones—I liked Divine Comedy of Errors).

Whoever thought this up deserves some points.
