Colson Whitehead's first book, if you're just getting into his work it's so worth going back to his early books. Ostensibly about an elevator repair person it is an amazing book about race and america. Like all his books.

As far as I'm concerned this is the best book of feminist speculative fiction. It's amazing how much Ms. Butler intuited about where we find ourselves today. If I ran into Olamina I think I would follow her up the road too: Maybe God is in Fact CHANGE.

My favorite historical fiction currently. Full of opera and mystery and false identities. Lilliet Berne is a complicated lady who will stay with me for a long time. If you are looking to immerse yourself in a sweeping narrative that transports you to another time and place, where things weren't simpler but they were definitely different, this book is for you.
