The Death of Ivan Ilych by Leo Tolstoy
Life is shallow and then you die. And the people who knew you only care about how your death affects their welfare. That pretty much sums up this classic satire about an upwardly-mobile judge. Yikes. This was the first book that Yann Martel recommended to Stephen Harper. Maybe lawyers and politicians are more likely to find resonance in it.
