Canone inverso : a novel
Maurensig, Paolo, 1943-
A short book that opens all kinds of doors to discussion. What is the role of art in life? Who is entitled to the great instruments of art? Brilliant language and a deliberately vague ending make this a terrific read.

Getting mother's body : a novel
Parks, Suzan-Lori.
Funny, moving story about a young girl trying to find money for an abortion after her (married) lover ditches her. Told in multiple voices, it comes across as a mix of The Cider House Rules and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World.

Salzman, Mark.
If you required a life-saving operation that would take away one of your reasons for living, would you have it? A nun's ethical struggle and her struggle with her own faith is told in sparse language.
