Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.
And here they are, quick as, no thinking:
A Room with a View, EM Forster.
The Joke, Milan Kundera.
The Makioka Sisters, Junichiro Tanizaki.
Schoolgirl, Osamu Dazai.
All the William books, Richmal Crompton.
My Brilliant Career, Miles Franklin
The Blue Flower, Penelope Fitzgerald.
Eucalyptus, Murray Bail.
Homage to Catalonia, George Orwell.
Love in a Fallen City, Eileen Chang
