John Waters' 6 favorite books

John Waters is the writer/director of the films Hairspray, Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, and Cecil B. Demented. His new book is Role Models.

Waters told The Week magazine about his six favorite books. One title on the list:
The Possibility of an Island by Michel Houellebecq

My favorite politically incorrect novelist can write like nobody’s business, including yours. Incredibly cruel, sexist, and outside any moral standards, this insanely brilliant science-fiction novel is as good a place as any to start reading this author … or stop.
Read about the other books on Waters' list.

See Ray Taras' review of Houellebecq's The Possibility of an Island.
