I'm about to go look for a book to read on the plane, and it's great to have
some suggestions. I've read "The Secret Life of Bees" and will have to go
check out "The Kite Runner".
Here's a few suggestions until you can get back to clay (I mentioned clay,
so it's not totally OT).
The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan
Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie
A Yellow Raft in Blue Water by Michael Dorris
Life of Pi by Yann Martell
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood (a bit strange)
The Known World by Edward P. Jones
The Liar's Club by Mary Karr
Books, the next best thing to clay.
