The Last Gentlman might be a good one (although the similarities--child
dying, etc., might make her think that we was a singer of one song, which,
of course, is far from the truth). The students in my Intro to Fiction
class enjoy Lancelot more than The Moviegoer (not enough sex and violence
probably). But it seems to have a certain appeal to young people, But I
guess it depends on how young your friend is and if she is offended by
some of the language. But if she is like my students (19 or 20), they seem
to be a pretty jaded bunch; not much shocks or disturbs them. They grew up
on MTV.

For what it's worth,
