Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld. This may sound like blasphemy to some, but I think Prep > Catcher in the Rye when it comes to explaining the anst of teenage years.

Yes it is by Joan Didion. It is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. It's so real (because it's about the death of her husband) and not to mention, Didion's writing is absolutely flawless. The way she captures loss first hand is so beautiful, you HAVE to read it haha. I am a huge Joan Didion fan, as you can tell.

Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates - a novel about Norma Jeane Baker/Marilyn Monroe. I have read it two times and it is without a doubt the best book that I have ever read. A real masterpiece according to me.

Crime and Punishment is such a brilliant book, everyone should read it
In search of lost time -- quite an undertaking but well worth it
Money by Martin Amis!
Play it as it lays

Recent books I read and loved are 2666 by Roberto Bolano and anything by Stephen Amidon, especially "Human capital".

I second Crime and Punishment and Play it As it Lays... best books!
Haven't read the other two, though.
