    Recommendations Based on Examples

    I tried using Goodreads' recommendation engine with a shelf of the below books, but the results weren't satisfactory (quite incongruous, really).

    Ishmael by Daniel Quinn
    A Naked Singularity by Sergio De La Pava
    Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig
    Lila by Robert M. Pirsig
    The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
    Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco

    Any recommendations based on books in this vein are much appreciated!
    "J'ai seul la clef de cette parade sauvage."
    - Rimbaud

    "Il est l'heure de s'enivrer!
    Pour n'être pas les esclaves martyrisés du Temps,
    enivrez-vous;
    enivrez-vous sans cesse!
    De vin, de poésie ou de vertu, à votre guise."
    - Baudelaire
