Well played, Honda Motor Corp. I may not be upgrading my CRV anytime soon, but thanks to your Ferris Bueller’s Day Off commercial I have been reuinited with a soundtrack from my youth. Now, what ode to the 80s to read first?

  • The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides
  • Fargo Rock City: A Heavy Metal Odyssey into Rural North Dakota by Chuck Klosterman
