NOVELS I'D LIKE TO READ THAT DON'T YET EXIST
Thanks for the list request, @ChrisK! I'll probably end up writing some of these so dibs on these ideas.
- •A fictionalisation of my life in which I end up marrying my celebrity crush and have to navigate my way around Hollywood and step children and all that stuff
- •A fictionalisation of my life in which I was right all along about having a long lost sister out there
- •An epistolary novel based largely on a friendship between a younger female writer and an older female writer and the man who links them
- •A book that mixes French and English the way Junot Diaz does with Spanish and English
- •A novel of social commentary (but also gorgeous writing and cracking plot) based on an alternate history in which America never fought the UK for independence and was still a colony, set in the present
- •A novel of social commentary (but also gorgeous writing and cracking plot) based on the notion that Thatcher didn't win in 1979.
- •A novel about a committed, pro-life (but non crazy) Christian who is nonetheless a Democrat and how she navigates working for a primary campaign given all that
- •An interconnected collection of short stories of "DC people"Lobbyists, yes, and politicians, but also the literary crowd, the students,the theatre people, the yummy mummies.
- •A novel of people who meet when they are stuck at an airport after the Eyjafjallajökull eruption.
- •A novel of people who meet lining the route for the procession Margaret Thatcher's funeral.
- •A fictionalisation of why there's no J Street in DCObviously there would need to be jealousy and spurned love involved rather than a load of architectural history because no offence to the architects among us but yawn.
