Haven’t read most of those, but A Dirty Job is one of Christopher Moore’s best.

I have Kafka on the Other Shore forever in my pile. I just don’t seem to snap in the right mood for Haruki Murakami. He will be coming to San Francisco for a reading next month and I guess it gives me an incentive to read him finally.

I’m interested to hear what you think of the Oates book. I’ve haven’t read that one, but I’ve become very interested in her writing of late. After reading two collections of short stories by her, she’s become somewhat of a favorite of mine.

Great stack! I’m lusting after the Murakami specifically.
