Looking for some cool beach reads to load on to your iPad this summer? Catch up on what all the smart Generation X kids were reading back in the day. The 1990s was a great time for postmodern fiction that was raw, hard-edged, and graphic. Before the days of wizards and vampires, the must-reads of the late 20th century had a bit more edge. A lot of them also happened to be made into some pretty great movies that are worth checking out too.
