These eleven books continue to haunt me in different ways. This is not a list of "great" works, or the "right" books to find inspiration--but it is a list of books I found to be ground-breaking and thought provoking, which is always a good place to start if you're looking for inspiring reads.
Not in any particular order:
1. The Dark Tower - Stephen King
2. The Stranger - Albert Camus
3. American Gods - Neil Gaiman
4. Wintersmith - Terry Pratchett
5. The Just-so Stories - Rudyard Kipling
6. Written on the Body - Jeannette Winterson
7. Hardcore Zen - Brad Warner
8. The Survivor Personality - Al Seibert
9. Man's Search for Meaning - Viktor Frankl
10. The Collected Poems of Sylvia Plath
11. Smoke From This Alter - Louis L'Amour
