Stanislaw Lem
Genre
Science Fiction
Review
There is nobody like Stanislaw Lem (1921-2006) The Star Diaries is a great place to start. Diary entries/short stories are funny, science-y and philosophical...(he figures robots will rule humans someday.)

Title
Twelve Tribes of Hattie
Author
Ayana Mathis
Genre
Fiction
Review
A series of connected stories about an African American family. Though this got great reviews I found it flat and pedantic. Only one or two characters seemed fully fleshed out -- mostly Hattie.
