This is my non-poetry reading list. I'll post a poetry list later in the week. And, as always, I'm looking for books to add.
Short Stories—My Life in Heavy Metal, Steve Almond.
Great read if you're looking for something edgy. I'll probably read all of his books this year. Steve is a Boston-area writer with whom I had the good fortune of having dinner with before this book was published. (Of course, he probably wouldn't remember—it was that long ago.)
Autobiography—A Personal History, Katherine Graham
Memoir—One Art: Letters by Elizabeth Bishop
Memoir—Broken Music, Sting
International Fiction—Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe
History—Against All Enemies, Richard A. Clarke
Field of Interest—The Norton Anthology of African American Literature
Author I’ve never read—Smilla’s Sense of Snow, Peter Hoeg
Classic—Grapes of Wrath—John Steinbeck
Classic—East of Eden—John Steinbeck
Classic—I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Maya Angelou
Nonfiction—Liar's Poker: Rising Through the Wreckage on Wall Street, Michael Lewis
Re-read—Bird by Bird, Anne Lamott
Suggested by Twitches—Life of Pi, Yann Martel
