GQ's PC Reading List

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?
