I'm currently reading The Dice Man by George Cockcroft. I'm only 50 pages in and so far I'm finding it both intriguing and disturbing. However, I've just looked on wikipedia and it's supposed to be 'semi-comedic'. It's the story of a psychiatrist who decides to make decisions on his life by rolling dice. There's a lot of sexual content and controversial issues such as rape and murder

Right how I am reading "How to Get the Love You Want." It's (obviously) a non-fiction relationship self-help book.
The last fiction book I read was "The Secret Life of Bees." It was an amazing book. I found myself crying buckets of tears a couple of times while I was reading it. It was a powerful story that I hope to get my 12 year-old daughter to read soon.

I'm trying to read Proust - again. I've just reread "How Proust can change your life" by Alain de Botton who I adore, I can't get enough of him. But I find Marcel a bit impenetrable.
Also "The secret life of poems" Tom Paulin. And "The Unconscious" Freud.
Don't read much fiction, and rarely just for entertainment. Just finished The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing and The House of Mirth, Edith Wharton. Both pretty bleak but worthwhile.
