Two of my alltime favs:
Bonfire of the vanities, Tom Wolfe. Or anything by Tom Wolfe.
Beach music by pat conroy.
Beach music is very good, even better is Lords of Discipline. Pat Conroy is a real quality writer.

Probably my favorite for non fiction: Douglas Hofstadter. The man is just brilliant.

Might be good.
Although if you're reading that, you should definitely read this classic.

Great book. Abraham J. Twerski was asked in the Hamodia a few weeks ago if he recommends this book. I forgot his answer.
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

Well no one interviewed me but I definitely recommend it.

It's tiny, more like a pamphlet. Wish I remember who I lent it to.

One memorable line is where he told a Chassid who lost all his children in the camps "Life cannot be rendered meaningful merely by it's perpetuation".

That's what you tell someone who lost all his children. But  IMHO, life can be rendered meaningful merely by it's perpetuation. There is a phenomenon known as people living through their children. It can be a problem, because they can be overprotective of their children, and micro-manage their lives. This problem exists by people whose only meaning in life is their children. But that doesn't mean that children can't render life meaningful. You're thoughts?
