  • City of Bohane, by Kevin Barry
  • The Map and the Territory, by Michel Houllebecq
  • Pure, by Andrew Miller
  • 1Q84, by Haruki Murakami
  • The Buddha in the Attic, by Julie Otsuka

The only one I’ve read is Swamplandia! (my review here), but I have The Map and the Territory on hand due to the BTBA. I’ve also been meaning to read The Buddha in the Attic.
