COMPASS by Mathias Enard

Winner of the 2016 Prix Goncourt, Enard's deliriously compelling and deeply erudite novel recounts the life of a dying Austrian Orientalist musicologist, stream-of-consciousness style, throughout one feverish night. Like fan fiction for musicologists. You will be constantly googling Eastern-centric writers, historians, artists and books. Academic candy.
