The Beatles – “Nowhere Man” from Rubber Soul (1965)
Aleksander Hemon’s novel of the same title is one of the best recent first novels that I’ve read in a long time. The story of a mid-1990s Sarajevan emigre to Chicago is strange and thrilling and owns up to horror and confusion while also ending with a beautiful, enigmatic spy story. Dang it’s a good book.
