The Rory Gilmore Book Club: 20 Of The Gilmore Girls Character’s Most Beloved Books
The Naked and the Dead by Norman Mailer
Norman Mailer was one of the first people to learn of Sookie St. James’s pregnancy during his cameo appearance on the show, one of the only stunt-casting moments on the seven-year series. Norman famously detested sitcoms, but when his actor son was tapped to appear on the show alongside the literary legend, the secret softy caved and showed up at the Dragonfly Inn. Apparently, Rory read The Naked and The Dead as a small child, so hopefully, we can get through it in our old age.
