The Assault on Tony's ? John O'Brien
So you actually probably know of John O'Brien because he wrote Leaving Las Vegas.  This book is an earlier work that was finished up by O'Brien's sister.  It's crazy.  It's about drunks trying to hold their bar during a revolution/riot & is a weird take on the post-apocalyptic idea.  I think the best part of the book is when the waitress is thinking about the things she does to systematically eliminate everyplace in the world from being someplace she feels comfortable.  Unsurprisingly parts of the book about drinking are incredibly accurate & delusional.

Blindness ? (I can't remember the author's name)
I didn't think I'd be able to complete this book.  It is the most depressing book I've ever read & the translator doesn't follow standard grammar rules & that's fairly annoying.  It's about an epidemic of blindness that leads to the end or at least a change to civilization.  I think it's probably the only fictional book I've read that's made me feel nauseous

Kiss & Make Up ? Gene Simmons
It's interesting to read how someone who admittedly is more talented at marketing than music managed to build the american icons that Kiss has become.  He's at least as pragmatic as he is creepy.
