Compass
Mathias Enard
Every decade or so, a book comes along that demonstrates the true gift that is 'Literature'. Compass is just such a book, one that through one man's single sleepless night plumbs no less than mortality, love, music, and the historical intermingling of two great cultures seemingly at odds. -- Recommended by Christopher P.

In the Distance
Hernan Diaz
The Western as American myth has rarely been done so well, or been so well subverted. Hernan Diaz's story of Hakan, a young Swedish immigrant forced to fend for himself in the Gold Rush-era American West, is a coming-of-age tale, a picaresque, and a survival story filled with evocative beauty. -- Recommended by Christopher P.
