The Alan Parker film is good, the William Wharton novel is better. An amazing book.

Middlesex Phenomenal book.

The late Sebastian Horsley's unforgettable book. More wordplay and wit in each single page than most works have in their entirety.

Michael Tisserand's book on Krazy Kat's creator, New Orleanian George Herriman.

catch-22 by joseph heller

Kublai Khan's empire is so vast that he relies on the adventurer Marco Polo to describe to him all the cities that he controls but will never visit. These descriptions are fantastical and thought provoking, raising questions about cities, travel and time as well as, maybe more subtly, what it means to be human. A beautiful book and one of my favourites!
