I read Everyman by Phillip Roth. A short novel, but a good one.
I'm currently reading a book called Beijing Wawa (that's the original title, I don't know if it was translated to English) by Chun Sue. It is another book that, like Shanghai Baby, was banned in China. I'm not sure yet about this one. It gives some insight into the Chinese rock scence, some of her thoughts remind me of my own adolescence, a lot of teenage angst, so much that it gets a bit silly at times.
