I have recently been sent my reading list for the MA in Creative Writing I am starting in October at Bath Spa University. I am so excited to start this course! These are the books I have to read over the next few months.
Cormac McCarthy The Road
Joyce Carol Oates Black Water
Bobbie Ann Mason In Country
William Styron Sophie’s Choice
Toni Morrison Beloved
Philip Roth Nemesis
Bonnie Jo Campbell American Salvage
Jonathan Safran Foer Everything is Illuminated
I have started with Sophie’s Choice as it is the biggest book, and I think I will read The Road next. I would love to hear your thoughts if you have read any of these!
