Lately I've been increasingly interested in finance, accounting, and macroeconomics. I am also working on some software that has accounting functionality. Anyways, I recently read 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance', and I've been inspired to read some more books (I'm not much of a reader typically). Do you know of any non-textbooky novels that go into finance, similar to the extent that ZatAoMM goes into motorcycle maintenance, even though it't not really 'about it'? I'm pretty sure I have to read cryptonomicon, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
