3 random books drawn from under Cath's bed:
1. Paulo Coelho: Veronica Decides to Die - The conventional notion of sanity is challenged as a suicidal girl is forced to live amidst the inhabitants of an asylum.
2. Haruki Murakami: Dance, Dance, Dance - Surreal, kaleidoscopic and Kafkaesque; this is my favorite amongst Murakami's topsy-turvy works of half-philosophy-half-mind****.
3. Jacqueline Carrey: Kushiel's Dart - Epic. Just epic. The heroine, a girl blessed/cursed to forever feel pain and pleasure as one, is trained to become a prostitute-spy. From the courtesan chambers to palaces of kings and queens, this slip of a girl ends up saving an entire kingdom from ruin. (NC-17, disturbing and explicit at times, but worth its queasy moments)
Not all those who wander are lost.
