City of Quartz by Mike Davis

It took me a while but I finally finished this fascinating book. It is a social history of LA written in a great literary style. Would be cool if he decided to write an updated version.

Highly Recommended

Lamb by Christopher Moore

This is the story of Christ from his childhood up to his crucifixion as told, very humorously, by his childhood friend Levi known as Biff. From early revivals of dead lizards to a journey to find the three wise men, Jesus and Biff form the teachings of what is now Christianity. Told in a humorous but respectful manner.

Highly Recommended
