House of Leaves: A Novel
House of Leaves: A Novel
by Mark Z. Danielewski
Staff Pick
"Saints be praised, this is the best book of the new millennium. A veritable tour de force. Pynchon meets Stephen King meets Robert Hughes meets Borges meets Dante. Joycian. Jungian. Mythic. Any clich used by fawning literary critics applies. Yadda Yadda... (read more)

A Fine Balance
A Fine Balance
by Rohinton Mistry
Staff Pick
For a while it seemed that novels set in India were all the rage. My favorite is A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. His massive tome ranges across the vast chasms of that giant subcontinent, all from the cramped apartment of Dina Dalal. Through her eyes,... (read more)

Fire at Eden's Gate: Tom McCall and the Oregon Story

The Brothers K
The Brothers K
by David James Duncan
Staff Pick
As a Northwesterner (or recovering Southerner) and a baseball fanatic, I highly recommend The Brothers K. From laugh out loud funny to tear in your eye sad, this book does everything you hope a novel will. It's a love letter to everything that's great... (read more)

We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families: Stories from Rwanda
We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families: Stories from Rwanda
by Philip Gourevitch
Staff Pick
"I urge everyone to read this book. The cover shows a picture of serenity, a scene from the beach of Lake Kivu in Rwanda. The landscape is devoid of human beings and an empty chair sits on the sand. The title in red stands out starkly from this backdrop.... (read more)

Libra
Libra
by Don DeLillo
Staff Pick
The Kennedy assassination is front and center in Libra, Don DeLillo's fictionalized biography of Lee Harvey Oswald. There isn't a German loan word big enough to fully describe DeLillo's talent. Using basically the same cast of characters that James... (read more)

The Devil and Sonny Liston
The Devil and Sonny Liston
by Nick Tosches
Staff Pick
I just finished rereading We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families because after reading Ordinary Men by Christopher Browning I thought that the atrocities committed in Rwanda might make more sense to me. There are eerie... (read more)
