The junior-year instructors in my department recently jettisoned The Catcher in the Rye as one of the required summer readings (and good riddance, although this last time I read it, I didn't hate it as much as I used to). So this piece, forwarded by a colleague, is a nice list of potential replacements for that antiestablishmentarian niche that Catcher used to fill. I love that the David Mitchell selection Black Swan Green heads the list. I need to put it on my to-read list along with Cloud Atlas and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet.
