Final List of Books Recommended in '1,000 Books to Read Before You Die': U-Z

"Encompassing fiction, poetry, science and science-fiction, travel writing, biography, children's books, history, and more, '1000 Books to Read Before You Die' moves across cultures and through time to present an eclectic collection of titles".
Entries are, for the most part, arranged alphabetically by author and at the end of each are: other notable books by the author; further reading (titles that shed additional light on the author's life, or on the subject treated by the main entry); works by other authors to try if they have enjoyed the featured book; adaptations in film, television, play, musical based on or inspired by the subject entry that are worth seeking out. Books are often recommended in more than one place, but, for the most part, I only include them once.
This is the last list in the series: happy reading!
