The "Mad Men"-Modern Library connection

Last night was the premiere of "Mad Men," a show I am predictably obsessed with but refuse to apologize. I won't spoil anything about the episode in case you're behind, but wanted to point out a tidbit -- the song played over the end credits is a British Invasion cover called "Tobacco Road," referencing the Erskine Caldwell novel of the same name. Better than the book, anyway. Listen to it here to jog your memory.

Plenty of other worthy tomes have been mentioned in the series so far; Flavorwire has an exhaustive round-up.
