Pascal Mercier, "Nachtzug nach Lissabon" (Nighttrain to Lisbon)
It is an introspective book which raises questions about yourself, about your life and the goals of it.
Recently a movie has been filmed after the book, I doubt they could represent exactly
the its atmosphere, since there are no many descriptive situations in the book.
I enjoyed reading it and I recommend it highly.
I do like " The Birthday Party" by Pinter :)
As I'm studying literature I'm usually crossreading several books at the same time:
for my studies:
pretty much the entire narrative works of Arthur Schnitzler
"The Birthday Party", "The Homecoming", "Betrayal" by Harold Pinter
"Mythologies" by Roland Barthes
"How Proust can change your life" by Alain de Botton
"Tod in Venedig" by Thomas Mann
Currently reading "La citta' di pan di zenzero" by Jennifer Steil. It's a book that I bought during my trip to Italy. Have recently strated reading it and it seems quite a good book
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick.
