Red Fiction: Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes is a quirky, non-traditional novel about love.  The Word Exchange, by Alena Graedon, offers an eerie, dystopian take on a world where words are disappearing in favor of memes.

Red History & Politics:  The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914, by Christopher Clark. If you’re intrigued by the causes of the 1st World War, this is a richly detailed read.  Dear Leader:  My Escape from North Korea, by Jang Jin-Sung, tells the author’s story of his time as the poet to Kim Jong-Il, propping up the leader’s ego, and forming a member of his inner circle.  A series of events, from a forbidden volume of poetry to his increasing disgust with the gap between the haves and have nots caused him to flee for his life.  It’s a jarring story, and one that may appeal to readers of Catlin Gabel speaker Adam Johnson’s The Orphan Master’s Son.
