Anyone know of great books related to international development that would be good for a book club? Recommendations welcome!

I've co-organized a little international development book club (nonfiction + fiction) for some time. Here's our reading list.

Amartya Sen’s ‘Development as Freedom‘ is a classic that inspired me a long time ago.

Novels? The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga is a classic. Really liked The Old Drift by Namwali Serpell. Swing Time by Zadie Smith is fun and has a sprinkling of international dev. This is a list by some of our fellows not all int dev related

How academic can they be? Hirschmann’s Development Projects Observed & Tendler’s Good Governance in the Tropics are the first 2 that come to mind
