…. to some of the lesser known literary masterpieces
(if you ever feel inclined…)
These are books that I read over and over again, in more or less regular intervals.
The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco is likely the finest book I’ve ever read. I’m never ever going to get tired of it.
The Notebook (by Agota Kristoff, not Nicholas Sparks, heaven forbid) is among the most powerful books I ever read.
Brokeback Mountain (Annie Proulx) left me unable to talk longer than any other book. Among my favorite love stories ever.
Anna Soror (Marguerite Yourcenar) — a tiny book as daring as it is lyrical.
Embers (Sandor Marai) – a duel of words and silence between two men who were in love with the same woman …
There are many more great books that I love, but this five will do for now.
