    Tabitha King, wife of best-selling author Stephen, wrote a book "One on One", that is an excellent read. If you go for historical or biographical novels, Irving Stone wrote 'The Agony and the Ecstasy', about Michelangelo. James A. Michener, a prolific author wrote "Hawaii," "The Source," "Poland," The Drifters'", Texas," "Space," "Alaska," and more. Harry Kemmelman wrote murder-mystery, mostly the Rabbi series, that includes titles like "Friday the Rabbi Saw Red." The series covers every day of the week, along with "Someday the Rabbi... " and "One Day ... ".

    I gave you just a small sample, only covering a few genres. It's hard fot me to say what are my absolute favorites of all times, since that changes as I change over time.

    Prometheus Rising by Robert Anton Wilson (New Falcon Publications) A superb (and seemingly experiemental) book written by a very interesting man. Robert combines, with great success, a delightfully wide range of idioms, psychological proccesses and scientific knowledge to effectively describe the experience of the individual and all the related phenomenon that you and I, as symbol-using apes, are familiar to, and that which may seem alien to us. Check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prometheus_Rising http://www.rawilson.com/prometheus.html
