Recommendations

I usually read fiction. But I have very much enjoyed my recent forays into non-fiction, reading Polio: An American Story (David Oshinsky) and The Price of Motherhood (Ann Crittenden).

Now I am looking for a new non-fiction book to read. And I'm open to suggestions.

Some non-fiction books I love:

Backlash by Susan Faludi
The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan
Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail of 1972 by Hunter S Thompson
What's the Matter With Kansas by Thomas Frank
The Kid by Dan Savage
Galileo's Daughter by Dava Sobel

I'll check out my bookshelf tonight and see what else I can come up with.

if you haven't read it yet, And the Band Played On by Randy Shilts is a fascinating read.

On Composing a Life
Bohos in paradise
Three Cups of Tea
and the book on microloans by the guy who won the nobel prize. I can't remember the name now but it was a great book.
