Heard of? Yes, some of them. Read? RANDOM ACTS OF SENSELESS VIOLENCE, LITTLE BIG MAN, and the two Jean Rhys books.
I was surprised to see LITTLE BIG MAN on the list, but I guess fame is fleeting.
I miss the old days.
Heard of ten; read four. I think my husband has that Beatles book somewhere amid his mass of Beatlesania. Meanwhile, I was surprised that Jean Rhys made the list for two different books neither one THE WIDE SARGASSO SEA.
I've heard of 13 of them and read 4. Little Big Man was a surprise, especially given how successful the movie was.
Has anyone read Stoner besides me? It has a great reputation and frequently shows up on lists like this but it left me cold. I sometimes wonder if, as a college professor myself, I am simply too close to the material to appreciate this novel about a frustrated academic.
I haven't read STONER, although I always felt I should. Maybe I will, one of these days.
