As If My To-Read List Weren’t Long Enough

New York Magazine’s “The Best Books You’ve Never Read“. Link via Mental Multivitamin.

Wait, I have read some of them! Ron Hansen’s Mariette in Ecstasy, Ali Smith’s The Accidental, and Kelly Link’s Stranger Things Happen. All were well worth my time. But Normal Rush’s Mating, which one critic mentioned as his best? Feh. Hated it. Sexist, pedantic, and needlessly esoteric.

My suggestion for the list? Maureen McHugh’s Mothers and Other Monsters. Shockingly good.
