Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics
Ross Douthat

The guy is evidently in a supporter of the neo-orthodox point of view and as such blind to the weaknesses of his home team, but otherwise well worth a read if you want to think about the direction of religion in the United States.

Most of the way through, Into the Silence; "The Great War, Mallory, and the Conquest of Everest"
Wade Davis, Vintage Canada

The opening chapters on the carnage and horrors of WW1's trench warfare set a disturbing backdrop for the British exploration of Mt. Everest.
A compelling read so far.

The Wasp Factory by Ian Banks

I really enjoyed The Wasp Factory.

If you like Banks, you might try Espedair Street, which isn't quite so bleak, and of course, his SciFi as Iain M. Banks is absolutely phenomenal. I recommend everything from "The Culture."

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Well worth getting past the moocow sentence. Did Frank McCourt model Angela's Ashes after this work or what?
