"The Plot Against America," or anything else by Philip Roth.

"Tulia: Race, Cocaine, and Corruption in a Small Texas Town," about how one white cop convicted many innocent blacks.

"the long emergency" james howard kunstler
"middlesex" jeffrey eugenides
i've also heard that "my sisters keeper" is supposed to be good.

Have you read or heard of "Paris is Burning"? It's a great work of non-fiction written by two journalists--one French and one American--about the liberation of Paris towards the end of WWII. I'm not a fan of non-fiction (prefer crime thrillers actually!), but this one really captivated me.

But if want some good crime mystery thrillers, pick up anything by Lawrence Block. The "burglar" series is my personal fave.

Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer (i've read it, but i'll read it again and highly recommend reading it for yourself if we don't read it for book club.)

Oryx & Crake by Margaret Atwood
(can we say "modern day prophet?" haven't read it, but heard it was good.)

instead of In Cold Blood, why not read Breakfast at Tiffany's? pretty thin by Capote. (only seen the movie...which i own, so we could watch the movie too.)
