For the history buff:

Captivity, by György Spiró

“Monumental…. The level of detail is stunning; Mr. Spiró seems to know absolutely everything about the first-century Mediterranean world and revels in Herodotean digressions.” —The Wall Street Journal

A literary sensation in Hungary, György Spiró’s Captivity is a gripping page-turner, a masterful historical epic, and a riotous road novel. Set in the tumultuous first century A.D., Captivity recounts the adventures of Uri, a bookish, hapless, young Roman Jew.
