For the Guardian she named a top ten list of revolutionary tales. Her inspiration:
"At a time when bankers have danced back to the top of the heap and are thumbing their noses at us once again, I thought it might cheer the population to read about people who have tried in different ways to overthrow the system. It's good to be reminded that not everyone submits."One novel on the list:
Fight Club by Chuck PalahnuikRead about another novel on Melville's list.
Boredom and dissatisfaction with a consumerist lifestyle leads to the formation of a fight club. The fight club culture spreads culminating in violent nihilist attacks on corporate America.
