Question For All You Literary People........

I've just finished reading "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" by Ken Kesey, and I'm looking for suggestions on what to read next. So....

If there was one book you wish everyone would read because it would make the world a better place, what would it be?

My choice: The Electric Kool-Aid Acid test by Tom Wolfe

Now, what's your suggestion?

P.S.- I'm cross posting this in Mellow Stoners, so now you know.

Ishmael by Daniel Quinn. don't ask, just read and you may never be the same.
Come on and save me from the ranks of the freaks who suspect that they could never love anyone.

Catch-22. Side-splitting, satirical and sad.
