I could never get into modern fiction. Not sure why, most likely I just assume it's sentimental or derivative crap. I'm probably missing a lot of good stuff. Recently finished Visit From The Goon Squad (it's about record excs, label owners, producers and people that float around in the music biz, so I'll say it is relevant to the forum), very good and the way the writer builds the story is phenomenal. I only picked it up though because it won a Pulitzer. Kind of weird, because I search out and enjoy the most obscure new music, but when it comes to books I'm super vanilla.
