My Absolute Favorite Works of Fiction
I love so many books you would think it'd be hard for me to choose a handful of absolute favorites. For some reason, though, I have a place in my soul that certain books just fall into automatically when I read them. They exist on a different plane of belovedness.
- •Mama Day by Gloria NaylorMagical realism. Matriarchy. The nitty-gritty of marriage. Dealing with all that one's heritage means.
- •Pride & Prejudice by Jane AustenDelightful every time, and to me, increasingly hilarious with each read. I adore Austen's prose, and her characters feel so fresh!
- •Rules of Civility by Amor TowlesIn a world where appearances and insinuations mean so much, what does it mean to really get to know a person? How can it be done? And what might one uncover?
