What's the overlooked gem, the book I haven't read that I must?

Every reader has at least one, that book that never caught on, or is out of print, but that resonates so much with people that they can't forget it. I still remember reading "The Republic of Tea" on the Sunday it came out years ago. And of course, Steve Pressfield's "The War of Art" which I've purchased and handed out a dozen times so far...

    Feb 25 2011: I don't mean to sound boastful here, but maybe you should try my book "Happy Something". It is about the meaning of life in a contemporary, philosophical and non religious manner. And truly a "novel" i.e. unlike anything, in terms of not only content but also structure. (Which can of course be good and bad, but to me originality was most important.) And I am not saying all this because it is my book, but it is my book because I was striving to write something most worthwhile, to me, a book about "everything".

    But if you don't maybe wait for the film version of it. :)
