If you have an impossible-to-buy-for guy in your life, you are not alone. Don’t settle on another tie or gift certificate—you can find the perfect book for your perfect guy (naughty or nice!) if you can just categorize his likes. Here are a few options to consider:
If your guy likes politics...
Nation Maker by Richard Gwyn is a #1 National Bestseller featuring John A. Macdonald, Canada’s first and most important prime minister. He’s the guy who made the Confederation happen, and who made our country what it is today.
When the Gods Changed by Peter C. Newman, Canada’s most “cussed and discussed” political journalist, on the death spiral of the Liberal Party.
If your guy likes adventure...
Into the Silence by Wade Davis is an epic book about the First World War and the young men who had fought in it, who then began a quest to conquer Mount Everest. It captures the unimaginable degree of risk the climbers took, and their ultimate price for success. This book is for anyone who enjoyedInto Thin Air by Jon Krakauer or Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand.
If your guy likes a really good read...
The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes is the winner of the 2011 Man Booker Prize. Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they navigated the girl drought of gawky adolescence together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumour and wit. Maybe Adrian was a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they swore to stay friends forever. Until Adrian's life took a turn into tragedy, and all of them, especially Tony, moved on and did their best to forget.
The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides is the long-awaited new novel from this Pulitzer Prize-winning author. The triangle in this amazing and delicious novel about a generation beginning to grow up is age old, and completely fresh and surprising.
