Understanding Media by Marshall McLuhan
You may recall McLuhan from the amazing scene in Annie Hall where he lives out all our fantasies of proving random idiots wrong. If only we could do something like that when arguing politics.
This is his McLuhan’s most well known work, preceding the prescient The Medium is the Massage by about three years. Available here.

The Fiancee by Alberto Vigevani
This Ace paperback edition of an Italian pulp novel would make a fun engagement gift for the right person (then again, it is a story of “a man’s redeeming passion for a girl he has violated). Available here.
