Like a "Sliding Doors" with class, this book plays out what would happen if a woman stayed with her stable, responsible lover of ten years, and what would happen if she left him for his irresistibly sexy, volatile friend. Since I constantly "Sliding ...more

Seduction is the art of getting what you want while making other people feel good. This book offers an interesting psychological perspective (are you a coy seducer? a charmer?) while offering some historical context (in a world where men are physical ...more

Eff you, Jesse, for saying this reminded you of me. Anyways, our main character Mariah is an actress in LA who's glory days are over, hates her friends, daughter's crazy in that deliciously vague 70s way, and to top it all off has to get a bo-bo when ...more

Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

In this book, the apocalypse happens because of genetic engineering. Oryx and Crake are like a bizarro reverse Adam and Eve, if Adam was a brilliant genetic physicist with anarchist tendencies, and Eve spent her childhood doing kiddie porn. A frighte ...more

Geek Love by Katherine Dunn

A book about a family of bred-to-be-bizarre carnie freaks, our narrator is a sharp witted, albino humpback midget. (For me, this is the book equivalent of Jerry Maguire's, "You had me at hello.") Equally overstuffed prose and a cheery attitude toward ...more

Creepy! Who is the lady picking up hitchhikers? How come they have to be a certain size? What happens after she puts them to sleep? Why did she have all that surgery? Lyrically disgusting, this book is too smart to be a guilty pleasure. (Hint: the an ...more

Slim, yet dense, this is a novel written by a poet about what it's like to be a neglected teen age girl, growing up sexy on a lake with an alcoholic mom and enabling dad. In this book, the most tragic event is rendered in the most dispassionate prose ...more

This book is like Harold and the Purple Crayon meets the Blair Witch Project, in book form. This book within a book within a book (ooh, "found" documents! warnings!!) is not only an a post-modern hat trick, but also a rip-roaring adventure yarn/love ...more

I heart the japanese. Who else could write a book about talking cats, incest, and ghost-sex that left me feeling as if I learned a little something about my own life? Awesomely sophisticated but not overly complicated, Murakami's prose is as clean an ...more
