Currently reading 'We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves' by Karen Joy Fowler. It was nominated for the Man Booker Prize.
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon. It won the Pulitzer in 2000 and it has Nazis, U-boats, comic book superheroes, Jewish mysticism, and post-WWII American history, and is, by turns, heart-wrenching and hilarious. It has been featured on many "Best American Novels of All Time" lists as well.
A former Philly girl, I've been a Parisian for three decades now. I write and translate and have 3 grown children sprinkled around the globe, though one still lives at home with me and our two cats (one main, one backup).
