Thomas Paine -- Common Sense

This short political pamphlet of 1774 - the lead in to the American Declaration of Independence led to a long discussion of politics, rights and history.

A hero in USA , I suspect not studied much in school history here

Confederacy of Dunces -- John Kennedy Toole

A wonderful larger than life series of characters living in New Orleans.
All enjoyed it
