Amy | 21 comments Reccomendations, anyone? (And I mean fiction. Not cookbooks or owner's manuals). :D

I'll throw in the one I can think of: "Aura" by Carlos Fuentes.

Oh, I thought of another....a book of short stories by Lorrie Moore: "Self-Help."

Amy | 21 comments Thanks,Becky. Duh - I saw that Iain Pears's novel "The Portrait" (which I now remember that I've read) is on that list.

Becky (beckyofthe19and9) No problem... I haven't read any books that use second person narration, so I figured that was the best I could do! LOL
