Friday Finds: The House of Tomorrow & Gun, with Occasional Music

Friday Finds is hosted by Should Be Reading and allows readers to showcase books they have discovered over the past week.  This week I found a literary fiction book and a sci-fi/mystery/farce novel.

First up, a book about outsiders trying to find their place in the world The House of Tomorrow by Peter's the super-fun trailer:

I also heard of a unique book called Gun, with Occasional Music by Jonathan Lethem (I love the title)!

Goodreads Summary:

Conrad Metcalf has problems. He has a monkey on his back, a rabbit in his waiting room, and a trigger-happy kangaroo on his tail. (Maybe evolution therapy is not such a good idea.)
He's been shadowing Celeste, the wife of an affluent Oakland urologist. Maybe falling in love with her a little at the same time. When the doctor turns up dead, Metcalf finds himself caught in a crossfire between the boys from the inquisitor's Office and the gangsters in the back room of the Fickle Muse.

Gotta love a quirky sci-fi mystery!
