Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto
Consideredas Banana Yoshimoto's best loved book, Kitchen features two distinct stories–an enchantingly original and deeply affecting book about mothers, love, tragedy, and the power of the kitchen and home in the lives of a pair of free-spirited young women in contemporary Japan.
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
Milan Kundera tells the story of a young woman in love with a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanizing and one of his mistresses and her humbly faithful lover. The Unbearable Lightness of Being is a magnificent novel that juxtaposes geographically distant places, brilliant and playful reflections, and a variety of styles.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
A satirical sci-fi classic that expounds on the absurdity of our place in the universe as the story focuses on a human fleeting to space. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a witty, inventive, and chaotic read: a masterpiece by Douglas Adams that has been adapted into various formats like stage shows, a TV series and feature film, comic books, and even a text-based computer game.
Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang
Award-winning writer Ted Chiang is considered to be the most honored young writer in modern science fiction. Stories of Your Life and Others is a collection of all seven of this extraordinary writer's short stories so far, plus an eighth story written especially for this volume.

The Stranger by Albert Camus
Behind the intrigue, Albert Camus explores what he termed “the nakedness of man faced with the absurd” and describes the condition of reckless alienation and spiritual exhaustion that characterized so much of 20th century life. First published in 1946, The Stranger is a novella on the lesson in absurdity and investigative analysis of a life faced with the 'benign indifference of the world'.
1984 by George Orwell
George Orwell’s 1984 is a dystopian social science fiction novel published in 1949 as a warning against totalitarianism. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell's prescience of modern life—the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language—and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell.
Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do? by Michael J. Sandel
A read on political philosophy, Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do? tackles affirmative action, same-sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, abortion, national service, and the moral limits of markets as Michael Sandel relates the big questions to the most vexing issues of the day, and shows how a surer grasp of philosophy can help us make sense of politics, morality, and our own convictions as well.
Music: A Very Short Introduction by Nicholas Cook

Los Angeles Times Book Award
In a world in which lives are shaped by irrevocable choices and by fortuitous events, a world in which everything occurs but once, existence seems to lose its substance, its weight. Hence we feel, says the novelist, ‘the unbearable lightness of being’--not only as the consequence of our private acts but also in the public sphere, and the two inevitably intertwine.

The world teems with different kinds of music--traditional, folk, classical, jazz, rock, pop--and each type of music tends to come with its own way of thinking. Drawing on a wealth of accessible examples ranging from Beethoven to Chinese zither music, this Very Short Introduction considers the history of music and thinking about music, focussing on its social and cultural dimensions. Nicholas Cook balances the Western Classical traditions within the context of many other musical cultures in today's world, tracing the way in which their development since the eighteenth century has conditioned present-day thinking and practice both within and beyond the West. He also considers the nature of music as a real-time performance practice; the role of music in contexts of social and political action; and the nature of musical thinking, including the roles played in it by instruments, notations, and creative imagination.
