The Sot-weed Factor?
The Demick is good. I'd also recommend Bruce Cumings' North Korea book. He's unapologetically on the left, but is also a legit, long-standing expert, with research bona fides few can match.
The Bug - Skeng  
 So, so good. But it's true Pynchon's style can grate. He's really not for everyone, and there are plenty of valid ways to criticize him. Some of his shit is atrocious, even. But not GR or M&D!
Le Quan Ninh - Ustensiles  
I like Alan Lightman a lot. Legit physicist, too. Life's unfair.   Of course, my desert island pick for mathy brainsizzle is Goedel, Escher, Bach, by Douglas Hofstadter...
The Meters - Look Ka Py Py  
Aaron Dilloway - Modern Jester
