Summer Reading List

Between recommended readings from class, suggestions from friends, and stray pick-ups along the way, I’ve accumulated a stockpile of presumably excellent books that I’ll probably never make it through during the school year. This is evidence by a number of bookmarks in these novels, typically around page 60, but I’m starting from page one unless it was a recent failed endeavor. I recognize that in all likelihood I won’t finish a third of these, but at the very least, it’s good to have a literary to-do list for future use, as well. And if I actually read all of these, rest assured there are more possibilities.

Banville, John. The Untouchable. 368 pp.
Bulgakov, Mikhail. The White Guard. 320 pp.
Bulgakov, Mikhail. Flight and Bliss. 158 pp.
Bulgakov, Mikhail. Heart of a Dog. 123 pp.
Calvino, Italo. If on a winter’s night a traveler. 260 pp.
DeLillo, Don. White Noise. 326 pp.
Faulkner, William. As I Lay Dying. 261 pp.
Faulkner, William. The Sound and the Fury. 326 pp.
Fitzgerald, F. Scott. Tender Is the Night. 315 pp.
Foucault, Michel. Discipline and Punish. 333 pp.
Greene, Graham. The End of the Affair. 238 pp.
Kafka, Franz. The Castle. 481 pp.
Murakami, Haruki. Norwegian Wood. 296 pp.
Nabokov, Vladimir. Pale Fire. 315 pp.
Palahniuk, Chuck. Haunted. 404 pp.
Pynchon, Thomas. Gravity’s Rainbow. 760 pp.
Rushdie, Salman. The Satanic Verses. 561 pp.
Sartre, Jean-Paul. The Age of Reason.
Thompson, Hunter S. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. 204 pp.
Zamyatin, Yevgeny. We. 232 pp.

As expected, this list is subject to change and to gross negligence.
