(REAL NAME)   
 
House Of Leaves
1.  House Of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
The list author says:
  "A book that offers more theories than the assassination of JFK; read over and over and never find the answers.  A horror story full of secret clues to be passed around friends and discussed for years."

News from Lake Wobegon Spring
3.  News from Lake Wobegon Spring by Garrison Keillor

American McGee's Alice
4.  American McGee's Alice by Aspyr

Little Earthquakes
5.  Little Earthquakes by Tori Amos

The West Wing - Complete Season 1 [DVD]
7.  The West Wing - Complete Season 1 [DVD] DVD ~ Martin Sheen

9.  The Colour of Magic: The First Discworld Novel: 1 by Terry Pratchett

Eddie Izzard: Glorious [VHS]
10.  Eddie Izzard: Glorious [VHS] VHS Eddie Izzard
The list author says:
  "Eddie's best, but to be honest, they're all fab.  His humour is both surreal and biting, with attacks on history, jam, bees, and God (played by James Mason). You won't be able to stop laughing."

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

Memoirs Of A Geisha
11.  Memoirs Of A Geisha by Arthur Golden

6.79   Used & New from: 0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (450 customer reviews)
