    I remember liking First Love, but haven't read anything by him in nearly 20 years. I've decided to re-read some of my favorite books, and have just started. I'm interested to see if I feel very differently about them after having been an adult for awhile.

    Have you read The Portable Atheist? Some of my favourite writers all in one book; Hitchens, Rushdie, Dawkins...

    I'm re-reading Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children at the moment, fantastic book.

    Fathers and Sons
    is my favorite "Russian" book. But I haven't read very many of the prominent Russian writers.
