Lloyd Jones' Mr. Pip - A Book recommendation
Go away to an island, a place of myth based on real. A fable story that has a "Little Prince" ability, a Murakami ability to get your imagination flowing but is also political without being big P political. I.e. Interesting, but still fiction story stunning. The magic that was the transporting reason you went to books as a kid. That kind of book. But for grownups.
