The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man

by James Weldon Johnson

One of the best books I have ever read. Things really haven't changed all that much in 100 years.

Another Study of Woman

by Honoré de Balzac

This is a great piece that depicts the transition France (particularly French women) underwent after Napoleon. Balzac is brilliant in displaying it all in the dialogue at a party.
