Or how I got tricked into thinking that studying comparative & general literature would be fun. Which it kind of is, actually.
- 1.Stoner by John WilliamsA stunning, deep novel that I – quite literally – always carry around with me. Narrating the life of a Southern Literature teacher all through the first half of the twentieth century, its riveting prose and its main character have fascinated me to the point of considering it one of the best books I have ever read.
- 2.One Hundred Years Of Solitude by Gabriel García MárquezClassic, beautiful and transfixing. García Márquez is very possibly the author I have come to admire the most, and this is by far his greatest novel.
- 3.Suite Française by Irène NémirovskyI have literally nagged friends into reading this one. I think you get the point.
