30 Day Book Challenge: Day 14 - Favorite Book By Your Favorite Writer.

Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been? - Joyce Carol Oates, Elaine Showalter South of the Border, West of the Sun - Haruki Murakami, Philip Gabriel

Well, crap.  I haven't read a complete book by either Joyce Carol Oates or Haruki Murakami.  So, picking these were tricky.


Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?:  I read this short story for a literature class I took a few years ago and then wrote a very long essay about it.  There were so many interpretations and so many hidden meanings scattered throughout the text that I literally felt as if it were endless.  She's a genius.


South of the Border, West of the Sun:  I read this book when I was nineteen, but I wasn't able to finish it.  It had absolutely nothing to do with the book itself, but time restraints placed on me.  It was a library book for one, and something else happened that I can't remember, but seemed to prevent me from finishing it.  One day I'll pick this up again, because I remember feeling so sad I wouldn't know the ending.  I must know that ending.
