Books With A Good Bit of Magical Realism

Books transport us outside of time and place or, sometimes, deeper into them. They let us travel, far-flung and searching. They often bring us home. Through them we find a deeper understanding of just what it is to be human.
The books I recommend here turn reality inside-out (in two of them time runs backwards). You’ll find quite a variety of characters in these books: one that talks to the dead and another that has fascinating conversations with a tiger. One who ponders miracles as he reminisces, and one who tenderly nurtures a garden of poisonous things.
