With 100 titles fully featured and over 500 recommended, there is something for everyone, from the macho to the sentimental, sex, drugs and rock and roll, old age, childhood, power, seduction, courage and adventure.

Burroughs, American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis, Steppenwolf by Herman Hesse, Master and Commander by Patrick O'Brian, The Book of Dave by Will Self, Touching the Void by Joe Simpson and Bonfire of the Vanities by Tom Wolfe.
