Hi,

this topic has only been discussed very long time ago. So I'd like to know what you consider a must read! Let me know what you think.

My favorites are "The Company - A Novel of the CIA" by Robert Littell
and "The Physician" by Noah Gordon


Regards,


PA

In English, my favorite novel is Portnoy's Complaint, by Philip Roth.

And my favorite essay (in English) is Downsize this, by Michael Moore.

Only one book as a must-read? No way, but first and foremostly it's

"The Cider House Rules" by John Irving.

After reading it, I was temporarily lost for contemporary literature because I couldn't find one that compared.
Other books I enjoyed a lot are:

"Owen Meany" by John Irving
"The Discovery of Heaven" by Harry Mulisch
"Home of the Sisters" by Charlotte Link
"Last Chance to see ..." by Douglas Adams
"The German Lesson" by Siegfried Lenz
"Soundcheck" by Siegfried Lenz
"The Story of Mr. Sommer", by Patrick Süskind and Jean-Jacques Sempe

Superfly -

Try to get a hold of "The Power Game" by Hedrick Smith. You'll be fascinated with what he writes about the influence of the AIPAC in Congress. It's a bit old but very interesting.
