Hey guys!

I'm looking for some new reads - I like biographies, like plays, but haven't found anything tickling my fancy lately.

Hilary's new book isn't well rated on amazon, so I have strayed away. Robin Robert's book was pure inspiration and had me bawling as I read along.

Now I was wondering if anyone had some good reads - as far as plays, I like Ibsen (A Doll's House), Tennessee Williams (Glass Menagerie, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Streetcar Named Desire), Death of a Salesman.

So... given my preferences... any ideas?

"Lysistrata" by Aristophanes

"Cloud Atlas" by David Mitchell
"Under Heaven" by Guy Gavriel Kay
"The Windup Girl" by Paolo Bacigalupi
"Snow Falling on Cedars" by David Guterson
"The Spanish Bow" by Andromeda Romano-Lax

"City of Theives" a couple of very violent scenes, but an amazing book

Oh, a bio, "In the Water, They Can't See You Cry", by Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard

"House of God" And "Mount Misery" (The second is my favorite of the two) Medical satire....
