The Kindle Editors sat down and gathered their favorite novels-- obscure gems, overlooked masterpieces, brilliant debuts, and other works of fiction--that should be in every Kindle library.
Books We’ve Read More Than Once
Some books deserve to be read more than once to appreciate them in full flight. These are some of the novels we’ve picked up again and again: •The Confession; Liberation Movements
by Olen Steinhauer: Amazing crime novels set in Eastern Europe featuring a group of detectives and spies in the ironically named People’s Militia.
by Carol Shields: Shields’s name has faded from view. Now that she is dead, her work should be vigorously kept in the literary public eye. •Master of the Crossroads
by Madison Smartt Bell: An achievement unparalleled in American letters since the time of Dos Passos. Disturbing in many parts, it is also a hell of a fun read.•The Teahouse Fire
by Ellis Avery: A nearly visceral nineteenth-century Kyoto. Told via an observant narrator who has a steamy girl-on-girl tryst that changes her life.
