With the Weathermen: The Personal Journey of a Revolutionary Woman (Subterranean Lives) by Susan Stern
With the Weathermen: The Personal Journey of a Revolutionary Woman (Subterranean Lives)

For anyone wishing to understand what it was like to be a woman in the Weather Underground, I don't see how you could do better than this memoir. Written only a few years after the events it narrates, it tells not only of the author's radicalization and participation in the movement's Seattle cell, but of how feminism and gender politics changed the movement. I found it riveting.

The Vagrants by Yiyun Li

I just finished reading this novel, and I can't say enough good things about it. It is complex, delicate and beautifully written, while at the same time it illustrates the most heartless and brutal human behavior. As a yet-unpublished novelist, I admire greatly its technical expertise and its brilliant use of perspective. It's one of the best literary novels I've read in a few years.
