Vacation

Vacation by Deb Olin Unferth [McSweeney's, $22]

In this oblique, absurdist debut novel, a man starts to spy on his wife—and learns that she is stalking someone else. Eventually, his obsession drives him to follow the mystery man across the globe, through earthquakes and credit-card cancellations. If you don't mind a bit of whimsical symbolism, this is well worth a look. Timothy Hodler
