This is the twelfth, and last, day of Bookmas. I hope you enjoy these twelve suggestions as much as I do. I leave you now with one final recommendation:
Don't confuse this with the Thomas Hobbes philosophy classic; this is the story of a man who blew himself up on the side of the road in northern Wisconsin on the USA’s Independence Day, 1990—and the strange journey he took to get there. A fantastic powerhouse of a novel; definitely literary (I have a high tolerance for pretentiousness) and a fascinating story. Auster is a great novelist, and in my opinion, this is his best work.
