Re: Recommend a book

My Name is Red by Turkish author Orhan Pamuk. It starts out from the point of view of a corpse in a well. Terrific murder mystery set in the 16th century Ottoman empire, with thoughts about art and culture and death. And it's funny!

Re: Books you had to read for school that you could not stand

The book that drove me personally batty was A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce. It's not that the writing itself was bad, it was that the main character was a whiny little piece of crud who moped around for several hundred pages about how his suffering was more special because h...

Re: Books that make you genuinely laugh

Two very funny books that people are less likely to have already read: War with the Newts written in 1936 by Czech writer Karel Čapek (who invented the word robot: the Czech word for worker spelled backwards.) Still funny 50 years later, which is much harder than being funny in your own time. The ro...

Re: Books that make you ridiculously happy (or: pick-me-ups)

Haroun and The Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie. I don't know why this book isn't better known, it's hilarious and brilliant. it combined the the joy of reading I felt when I was a kid with hilarious cultural references and a great theme.
