100 Top Books By 100 UW Authors some interesting books by University of Washington authors
Luis Alberto Urrea (From The Week 7 April 2006)
He is the author of The Devil's Highway and Then Hummingbird's Daughter.
He recommends Nobody's Angel by Thomas McGuane, The Stand, Desrt Solitaire, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard, THe Essential Haiku by Robert Haas, and The Motorcycle Betrayal Poems by Diane Wakoski. An interesting selection - several I alraady like, so my guess is that there is a fair chance that I will enjoy some of the others he has selected.
Against the Day by Thomas Pynchon - maybe???
