About a little boy who loses his dad on 9/11. Pretty ambitious to tell it from the point of view of a 9-year-old. Funny and sad -- I got a bit teary at the end.

Kind of show-offy, but fun to read. Reminded me of "The Secret History" a little.

I guess it's OK if you're older than 16 when you first read these stories, but they won't feel as subversive and fun.

Light in August by William Faulkner

I think this is the nicest of all Faulkner's books. It's nice and dense and chewy -- but full of hope, too.
