crushing on stephen daedalus.

4 Jun

I have started reading A Portrait of an Artist As a Young Man by Joyce. I loved the short story “The Dead” and decided to start reading this to prepare me for Finnegan’s Wake in the not so immediate future. I have a list of about thirty books that I am going to try to read over the next year or so, and will continue to add more to it. There are loads of nonfiction dealing with diet, environment, and human rights that are not apart of the thirty, but will also be reading on the side. Let me know if I need to add anything, or if you’ve read any of them. I am using random integer to pick the next book. It chose Women by Bukoski. So far, the list consists of:

  • To the Lighthouse: Virginia Woolfe
  • Slaughterhouse-Five: Kurt Vonnegut
  • A Passage to India: E.M. Forster
  • As I Lay Dying: William Faulkner
  • All the King’s Men: Robert Penn Warren
  • The Sun Also Rises: Ernest Hemingway
  • The House of Mirth: Edith Wharton
  • Women: Charles Bukowski
  • The Rainbow: D.H. Lawrence
  • Women in Love: D.H. Lawrence
  • The Handmaid’s Tale: Margaret Atwood
  • Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: Robert M. Pirsig
  • Blood Meridian: Cormac McCarthy
  • Portrait of a Lady: Henry James
  • Tender is the Night: F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • Midnight’s Children: Salman Rushdie
  • Pride and Prejudice: Jane Austen
  • The Lovely Bones: Alice Sebold
  • One Hundred Years of Solitude: Gabriel García Márquez
  • Oh, the Glory of it All: Sean Wilsey
  • Kafka on the Shore: Haruki Murakami
  • Breakfast at Tiffany’s: Truman Capote
