I loved the plot of Bel Canto
by Ann Patchett. Any recommendations for similar books, shows, or movies?

I loved how Patchett's book showed hostages and hostage takers forming a sort of community within their besieged compound.
I also remember an essay with a similar theme by P.J. O'Rourke. It involved him being stuck in a hotel with a bunch of foreign correspondents during a bombing and talked about how they coped.
