- A gate at the stairs by Lorrie Moore
- Noahs Compass by Ann Taylor
and anything by Richard Yates
( I want to work my way through all his books).I have only read
Cold Spring Habour so far

my all time fave is probably To kill a Mockingbird...I also really loved
Extremly loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer( love the way he writes)
