Two requests

1. I'm looking for any good non-fiction history books, or well-written fiction books, on the topic of 1920's America, particularly in Chicago, New York, or San Francisco. If the books centres on prohibition, that would be a massive plus, but just general 1920’s American society is just as good.

2. I’m also looking for some new books to read. I mostly like either fantasy or science fiction, though I am partial to a good mystery or crime novel at times. As an example of my taste in fiction, here are books I’ve been reading recently:

O Jerusalem by Laurie R. King (I’ve been re-reading the series)
The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Havemercy by Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennet
Everything by Neil Gaiman or Terry Pratchett that I can get my hands on
Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan

Any help with either of these requests would be greatly appreciated.
