Fiction that I have enjoyed.
The Grass Is Singing
"I read this for a module on 1950s literature - it relates the experiences of a young married woman on a farm in Africa. It is a very moving and interesting story by a great writer."
"I wrote my MA dissertation on this wonderful book which is a fictional account of the life of Marilyn Monroe. A fascinating addition to the myths surrounding this icon."
"Stephen King's memoirs make a great read especially for any budding writers. Then read 'Misery' just for fun!"
Bear (New Canadian Library)
"A brilliant, and controversial short novel about the 'nature' of sexuality and companionship."
The Bluest Eye
"This novel unflinchingly deals with the nature of incest, rape, abuse, madness and beauty. If you like this you'll love 'Beloved'."
I Know This Much is True
"Wally Lamb tells very moving stories. I loved this book which I read in a town house in Whitby one summer. Also see, 'She's Come Undone'."
The Grapes of Wrath
"What a great American novel. If you read 'Of Mice and Men' at school, return to Steinbeck with this brilliant book. I love the ending in which survival becomes something particularly 'female'."
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings
"The first installment of Maya Angelou's autobiography; revealing, moving and very interesting."
The Handmaid's Tale (Contemporary Classics)
"Although I'm sometimes unsure about Atwood's work, this novel presents a fascinating and frightening dysopian vision."
The Age of Reason (Penguin Modern Classics)
"I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this novel. I was particularly interested in Sartre's use of the body."
Captain Corelli's Mandolin
"A great love story. I woke up early to finish this book before work one day and cried my eyes out!"
Wuthering Heights (Penguin Classics)
"Forget Charlotte's 'Jane Eyre' and try Emily's novel instead; you won't be disappointed."
Anna Karenina (Penguin Classics)
"Possibly my favourite book of all time. A vast but completely absorbing novel. One day I hope to find the time to tackle 'War and Peace'."
Sunset Over Chocolate Mountains
"This is a peculiar book but, I thought, really compelling and interesting. Family and friends weren't so impressed, but I loved it."
Middlemarch (Oxford World's Classics)
"A 'masterpiece', but don't let that put you off! Eliot is a brilliant writer - see also, 'The Mill on the Floss'."
LA Confidential: Classic Noir
"Want to read something a bit different? Try Ellroy's novels. His use of language is unusual and very effective."
"From the author of 'The Virgin Suicides'. This novel raises very interesting questions about gender, sexuality and family."
"This was my first 'book club' read and there was certainly a lot to be discussed. We all disliked the ending but, on the whole, loved the book."
The Talented Mr. Ripley
"A cracking novel. The film does a good job too, but give the book a try and you won't be disappointed. A great pool-side read."
"Another tear-jerker, or so I found, and in somewhat the same vein as 'The Handmaid's Tale'. I loved this novel which I read for a module on representations of the body."
"Snuggle up with this book and you won't be disappointed."
Gone with the Wind
"I grew up with the film and couldn't wait until I was old enough to read the book. It was well worth the wait! This is another contender for my favourite book ever."
The English Patient
"Forget how 'real' the book is and just enjoy the writing and the love story. Great read."
The Bell Jar (Faber Paper Covered Editions)
"Brilliant semi-autobiographical novel. Like Monroe, Plath is surrounded my myth. Forget all that - just read it and love it."
Wide Sargasso Sea (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Again, forget 'Jane Eyre' and enjoy this novel in its own right. Jean Rhys is a very powerful writer - see also 'Voyage in the Dark'."
