"Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates" by Tom Robbins. It is an easy to read novel with an interesting look at spirituality and how each of us needs to decide what that means to them.

Especially A Walk in the Woods. That first couple of chapters is freaking hillarious. I've read that book twice already, and may go back for a third helping.
