Literary mavens can get a sneak preview: the esteemed book journal that is the New York Post has published excerpts. (You know you’re going to look. Go on.) And popeater.com has paired the choicest morsels with related gems from Hemingway, Steinbeck, Didion, and Faulkner–the better to place Snooki’s oeuvre in its proper context within the writing world.
