10. Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides (Loaned to me by a silly white boy, and an excellent read! Takes place in and around Detroit, telling the story of three generations of a family of Greeks who immigrate to the US. It also explores gender concepts -- it doesn't waste any time, as the very first line dives right into the meat of the story. "I was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day... and then again, as a teenage boy, in an emergency room near Petoskey Michigan...." Recommended.)

9. American Gods, by Neil Gaimon (For awhile he had set up a site where his fans could come read this whole novel on the internet, for free. So I did, because I wanted to reread it. It's an entertaining book. When a culture travels to the new world, they bring their gods with them. What happens to the gods when people stop believing in them? Also coin tricks and pasties.)
