Staff Summer Reading Lists: Amanda











Over the next few weeks, we'll check out what the staff here at City Lit is planning to read this summer, and a little bit of why. Here's Amanda's list to start us off:

The Kitchen, Banana Yoshimoto

Because she has a really great name. But really, I want to read more contemporary Japanese fiction.

The Miner, Natsume Sōseki

More Japanese stuff, but this guy is apparently one of the pioneers of contemporary Japanese lit. And I’ve heard this is his most off the wall book. And Murakami likes him!

A Good Man is Hard to Find, Flannery O’Conner

Because I saw that Sufjan Stevens has a song about one of the short stories in this collection.

And Then There Were None, Agatha Christie

Because my girlfriend told me I have to read it if I truly love her.
