Lately I've been on a fiction binge. The Fort: A Novel of the Revolutionary War - Bernard Cornwell, Son of Heaven - David Wingrove, December 6 - Martin Cruz Smith and Galileo's Dream - Kim Stanley Robinson.
In between those I've reading a non fiction book, April 1865 the Month That Saved a Nation by Jay Winik it's excellent. His other book the Great Upheaval is also terribly good. He's a wonderful writer and scholar.
At hand now is The Good Son - Michael Gruber a novel set partly in right now Pakistan. He's a very interesting, thoughtful and imaginative author. I've enjoyed all his books so far.
