On The Road by Jack Kerouac, own it, for several years now, I tried, I really tried, just can not get through it, nauseating would be a good description for the writing.
Can not get anywhere with anything by John Steinbeck.
Not much enamored by anything written by politicians, though apparently it is a MUST for all "correct" persons to read such crap. Fortunately for me I am far from being "the new worlds' idea of being a correct person". Politicians lie enough on the telly, and in the news, and on the radio, I don't have to go chucking good money to wind to get to know them any better than they display to me freely every day.
