this is a great thread...Printed this off for my next trip to the bookshop.

Here are some I liked recently....

A Day in the life of Ivan Denisovich - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Life in the gulag)
Stalingrad - Antony Beevor (story of siege of Stalingrad - war is hell)
The Trail - Franz Kafka (Faceless, communist, alienation, repression vibe)
Picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde (the darkness of the soul)
At Swim Two Birds - Flann O'Brien (diet james joyce - stream of consc fun)
Borstal Boy - Brendan Behan (Young IRA man in British prison during war - surprisingly touching)
Any/every Len Deighton (slow burning spy intrigue and pithy, weary character portraits)
Three Men in A Boat - Jerome K Jerome (Three 19th century slackers take a boat trip up Thames - funny)
