The editors of GQ list "21 books you don't have to read."
Understatement alert: They don't make their case.
This excerpt provides a glimpse at their mindset:
"I actually love Lonesome Dove, but I'm convinced that the cowboy mythos, with its rigid masculine emotional landscape, glorification of guns and destruction, and misogynistic gender roles, is a major factor in the degradation of America."
Wait until they get to Hemingway and Twain.
Did I somehow miss that the list is a clever attempt at satire?
