    If you like Empire Falls, then try his earlier (first?) book The Risk Pool. Very similar, and yet so much better.

    Hmmm... Well, they're both very good. Empire Falls, though, had too much of a "ripped from the headlines" feel about it for me.

    Gods Behaving Badly, by Marie Phillips, about the Greek gods living in London today. Funny.

    The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, by Jean-Dominique Bauby. Phenomenal. Absolutely stunning. Both funny and heart-wrenching...I was actually laughing on the train this morning, and alternately fighting not to cry.

    Just finished Atonement - very good, very well-written, very sad.

    That's how I felt about the movie. Such a tragic ending for the lovers because of one horrible lie.

    Come to the end of The End the last of the "Unfortunate Events" by Lemony Snicket
    a deeply troubling book with moral ambiguity abound that the Happy Ending Feelgood Factory Churner-Outers at hollywood should read.
