The Brave by Gregory McDonald
Now, I can hear rumblings from the peanut gallery – people asking why on earth I read these in the first place. Well, I don’t really have an answer for that. I’ll blame some of my early reading, particularly Russell Hoban’s The Mouse and His Child, a children’s book that’s grim, almost existential fare. And those Choose Your Own Adventure books – no matter what I did, I always got the “and you were never heard from again” endings. Just lucky, I guess.

Web of the City - Harlan Ellison (this is Harlan's book he wrote after going undercover in a Brooklyn street gang in the 1950s)
Blandings Castle - P. G. Wodehouse (I only have one more Jeeves novel left that I haven't read, and hope the Blandings books are as good)
