Are....

Palestine by Joe Sacco (2), Maus : a survivor's tale by Art Spiegelman (2), Under the banner of heaven : a story of violent faith by Jon Krakauer (2), Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi (2), Stiff : the curious lives of human cadavers by Mary Roach (2), Fast food nation : the dark side of the all-American meal by Eric Schlosser (2).

How exciting - this is the first time I think I've noticed that I actually own/have read all of the most commonly shared works for a group I'm in. I know we're a small group, but still...neat!

I am the other member or the group who has read Stiff. It certainly qualifies as a Micro-History and in some ways a commodity history.

Under the banner of heaven was really intense.

Sebastian Junger isn't for the faint of heart, in a fashion similar to that of Krakauer. Both have journalistic styles that are immersing and gripping. It's sort of like watching a horror movie through that little crack in your fingers ... Scary, but you don't want to miss any of it.

Enjoy, bfertig!
