of a hipster, with
particular interest in literature. Litsters are involved in writing poetry, fiction, or non-fiction memoirs. Litsters regularly
read books published by McSweeney's, but swear
off New York Times bestsellers unless
it is, by chance, a McSweeney's publication (e.g. Dave Eggers' works). Other litster favorites include Kerouac, Bukowski, Thompson, Vonnegut, Foer, Franzen, Zadie Smith, etc. Litsters will typically shop at independent booksellers (who carry McSweeney's items) over larger conglomerates. Typical litster apparel follows that of a hipster: black-framed glasses, ironic
t-shirts, stripped ties, blazers. They invest in the newest accessories (e.g. iPods), yet their Chuck Taylors will always look filthy.
