A class at Brooklyn College is using Young Adam. The syllabus itself contains a perfect book list. From Hell, T.A.Z., We Have Always Lived in the Castle...it's a good lot of great reading.
They're clearly up to Young Adam. And a number of the students have come in over the past week, asking for it by author last name. Author last name, alone.
Nobody has asked for anything else this way. Ever. But people just walk in and say to me, "Trocchi." Explain it to me. Will people ask for From Hell in the same manner? Just wander in and intone, "Moore?"
It wouldn't be a bad thing, I just want to be prepared.
