I Love Dick by Chris Kraus

Ok, so reading this book is absolutely mandatory if you're in a topless book club. You can't just be in a topless book club without thinking about the underlying reasons of why the mere existence of a topless book club is a troubling thing to society. Be smart about it. And the smartest thing to do is read this book by Chris Kraus which so completely deals with every issue that being a member of a topless book club brings up. I mean, sample quote: “Why does everybody think that women are debasing themselves when we expose the conditions of our own debasement? Why do women always have to come clean?...Isn’t the greatest freedom in the world the freedom to be wrong?” Plus, this is kind of the perfect book for people to see you reading as you lie naked in the grass. It's also an excellent book to bring on the subway if you like to watch people squirm. Which, let's face it, you do, don't you? Of course you do. We all do.
