Staff Pick by comrade: Lucas

Brace yourself. This existential novel built around a nested Ionescoan play is not a once-over-on-the-bus-and-before-bed read. If you like fiction that makes you think--about the moral ambivalence of life, the palliative nature of art, the immediacy of death--more than tells a story, you'll love this book.
