By Gregory David Roberts
Our editor's favorite book, this one will take you on a wild ride so good Johnny Depp is rumored to be staring in the film adaptation.
Are You Experienced?
By William Sutfliffe
A quick read that pokes fun of travelers in India. Definitely funny, but a little dark if you read between the lines. Which you will, because you won't be able to put it down.
Memoirs Of A Geisha
By Arthur Golden
There are definitely more factual books out there about the country, but this is a page turner that'll give you a fascinating glimpse into life in post-war Japan.
By Alex Garland
Forget the movie and read this instead. It's that good, and for once, Leonardo didn't do a story justice.
The Damage Done: 12 Years In A Bangkok Prison
By Warren Fellows
This one might scare you straight, but it's a hell of a read.
