The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis
A beautiful story about an alien who comes to Earth on a mission. He has to learn to fit in, and earn lots and lots of money, but living on Earth changes him as well. This sort of reminded me of the story The Humans by Matt Haig. It's interesting to see humans from the alien perspective. We are just as strange as the aliens!
I want to be careful not to say too much about this story so I don't spoil it for you. This book certainly deserves to be in this SF Masterworks collection. I can't believe I've never heard of this author as I consider myself well-read in sci-fi. I found out that he is well-known for his book Mockingbird. I have added that to my To-Read list as well.
