I read Roth's The Plot Against America a few months back. I'll admit I knew nothing of Roth or his work, but I randomly came across this novel and was fascinated by the twist of historical fiction/hypothesis that he proposes. You may enjoy it... his writing is very good....

Public Enemies by Bryan Burrough. A well-written book.

Borges is a treasure. I read a couple of pieces by this Turkish author called Orhan Pamuk. Some of his writing seems very inspired by Borges.

Picked up reading again for the winter holidays.

Just finished:
Everything is illuminated by Milan Kundera - Really liked it. Kundera set out to do big things from the beginning and delivered in my opinion.
Imperial Bedrooms by Bret Easton Ellis - Liked it. Read it shortly after 'Less than zero'. Preferred Ltz to Ib.

Currently reading:
The big sleep by Raymond Chandler

Thanks for the tip. I read The Human Stain prior to this one and really enjoyed his writing so thought I'd pick up another. I'll keep the one you read in mind for my next trip to the book store.

I'm about 20% of the way through Freedom by Jonathan Franzen.

I loved The Corrections and Freedom hasn't disappointed yet.
