Geek Love by Katherine Dunn

Biologically brilliant; genetically gigantic; chemically colossal - that's the weight of this novel. Follow the life story of one carnival freak as she breaks free from the family of genetic defects that are her brothers and sisters.

Sex with Kings: Five Hundred Years of Adultery, Power, Rivalry and Revenge (P.S.) by Eleanor Herman

Think Bill Clinton had scandalous liasons in office? Piqued by Giulianni's four wives? Sex with Kings is a very smart, witty look at the sex lives of the Monarchs of Europe. Informative, brilliant and very, very funny.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

If you're searching for a new take on the frequently visited Apocalyptic novel, look elsewhere. I enjoyed the book for the fact that it had pages, little black letters and a cover - my mother always said that I shouldn't be so easy - but it's psychological delve into post-apocalyptic America didn't raise any new enlightenment to a subject that has "gone before". I prefer to keep my "end of the world" literature pure, sickly sweet Science Fiction. Other dystopian or apocolyptic suggestions: The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, The Stand by Stephen King (the book, not the movie my friend) or Lucifer's Hammer by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.
