What book(s) have you read recently that would make a great basis for stimulating conversation?

Cities by James Morris. Interestingly antiquated idioms from a shrinking empire on an expanding world stage. This man now lives as a woman in the tiny provincial Welsh hinterlands, apparently. Only written like 55 or 60 years ago.

What's your favorite nonfiction book ever?

The List, by Chet Dettlinger, concerning the murdered Atlanta street kids. Those crimes represented the total breakdown of modern urbanized society. Lengthy account from a smart cop on the vanguard, better than all the others on the subject.

What's a novel that you read for a high school or college requirement that really stayed with you?

Uhhhhhh As You Like It?
