New Year Book suggestions

Though there are nearly two million books out there, just in case you were looking for one of mine, here are a few recommendations (old and new--most of the following are e-books; for paperbacks, please check my website or my other blog post):


"Rife with inventive comic imagery as “A Confederacy of Dunces,” insightful, subtly searing as “Catcher in the Rye."--Amazon.com 5-star review

The Revised Kama Sutra is, despite its name, about much, much more than sex; but if you prefer the portion of it that deals with childhood, then I suggest One Little Indian, which is much shorter, and in which the emphasis is much more on childhood and growing up.

Shorter, and very different, is the next book, described as "hysterical" and "for the rebel in you" (equally funny, if you don't want the "parenting" parody, is The Empire Bites Back)



The Empire Bites Back includes all the humor essays of the above, except for the wisecracking child; it is more political:



More serious, and a must for those who want to know who I really am at this point in time (also on Apple and BN) : Benzo Land: My Secret Life With Benzodiazepines, Psychiatrists, and Wonder Drugs


Or Eaten by the Japanese, which is loved by British readers and nearly everyone who takes the trouble to read it?



Or, how about Impressing the Whites or The Killing of an Author (a sense of humor from start to finish"--The Week) for a contrarian voice, one that challenges the Establishment and the corrupt?




Ready to take a risk with something completely different? Try:
