In two weeks and one day I will be going to Italy. While there, and when I return, I will need things to read. Lately I've been tearing through books so I need some recommendations before I run out of things to read. So, suggest away. As a guide, and so you don't recommend something I've read, here is a list of books I've finished in the last, uh, while.

Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem
McSweeney's Quarterly Concern #13 edited by Chris Ware
Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
Choke by Chuck Palakhniuk
Ghostwritten by David Mitchell
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

I feel like I'm missing a couple, but that's a representative list.
