Megan recommends: Lost in Place
This is an oldie but a goodie. Mark Salzman has written quite a few novels, but I like his memoir of growing up in suburban Connecticut in the 1970s. Lost in Place: Growing Up Absurd in Suburbia chronicles his childhood as an unconventional kid in a conventional family with humor and grace. His attempts to adopt the lifestyle of a Zen monk are particularly funny.
