    Exit Ghost by Philip Roth. Quite possibly for the second time.:innocent:

    The Financier by Theodore Dreiser. The original 'Greed is Good,' it seems.

    We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land by Jimmy Carter. Fantasy

    I recently started reading Henning Mankell's books, after watching the Wallender series on TV. He is a terrific detective writer. Another Swedish writere of the same calibre is Stieg Larsson, with his Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series.
    The three Makell books I have read are, The Dogs of Riga, Firewall and Faceless Killers.

    ^^ Mankell is a good writer. I prefer his work to that of Steig Larsson.

    Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö are not to be overlooked either. Too bad they wrote so few.
