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.
