One of Agatha Christie's own personal favorites, this classic whodunit features some of her most delectable characters...and certainly one of her most shocking and controversial plot twists. This often overlooked mystery is classy, engaging, and baffling from beginning to end. Keep an eye out for the film version starring Glenn Close!.

Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer is a good read, but honestly don't read unless you want to be convinced to never eat meat again.

Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado is equal parts sensual and strange, Machado's debut collection of short stories weave together realism and the supernatural to explore themes of queerness, women's lives and the violence inflicted upon them. Fearless and full of imagination this is a collection not to be missed!

This verse novel by Anne Carson tackles the concepts of family, identity, sexuality, and more. Combining allusions to Greek mythology, rhapsodic language that rolls endlessly around in your brain post-read, fascinating geological settings, and the details of a burgeoning homosexual romance, the novel perfectly encapsulates the torments of a bildungsroman while giving the reader a glimpse of the regular life of Geryon, a red boy with wings.

A good friend locked me in her bathroom (oh dear!) and refused to let me out until I read every word of David’ Lynch’s Catching the Big Fish. This during my lunatic phase, and here I am, still alive and no longer a Madman. I’m not suggesting that David Lynch (best known of films like Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive and The Elephant Man) saved my life, but he certainly played a role in getting me out of Kelly’s bathroom that one time. And he entertained me for a solid 73 minutes with this fast, zen-y, meditative look into the mind of one of the Great Modern American Filmmakers.

These are some of the best short stories I've read in a very long time. There isn't an extra word, or a word out of place in this brutal, complete, and basically perfect collection. It's a shame this is all we get, but it's also a perfect book. A must read.
