    As far as the OP's question: Two books stand out.

    One was The Age of Reason by Sartre. From it, I came to the conclusion that commitment is important to the life well-lived (which is probably the reverse of what Sartre wanted to portray).

    The other was The Autobiography of a Yogi by Parmahansa Yogananda, which, yes, I know, isn't fiction. But while I was reading it, I heard the inner voice that gave me my Sikh name, Siri Kirpal Kaur.

    Blessings,
