What would be a good book to read in english class for a fellow pychonaut?
Any books that involve drugs are coo.. but try to name a book that you think would be in a school library


-Thanks

Are you looking for fiction or non-fiction?

Fiction, I'd go with Alice in Wonderland. It's a classic, so there's a TON of info about it around the net...plus it reads like someone's mushroom trip report :smirk:

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

the ILLUMINATUS! trilogy - robert shea & robert anton wilson

just open it up, and start reciting to the class...

:thumbup:

"If all are One," the fifth Illuminatus added significantly, "all violence is masochism."
"If all are One," Brother Otto replied nastily, "all sex is masturbation..."

Any Tom Robbins novel. He's fixated with hallucinogens and anal sex.
