To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Stolen Child by Keith Donahue
This book took me forever to read. It was just… a lot more boring than it should have been, considering the very interesting subject matter and plot. I think it would make a wild movie, but the book lacks something.
Hobomok by Lydia Maria Francis Child
Pretty interesting and fairly realistic (as opposed to The Last of the Mohicans, say?) depiction of the interaction between puritans and native americans.
Wrong by Dennis Cooper
Wow. Dennis Cooper.
Dream Boy: A Novel by Jim Grimsley
One of the first gay novels I ever read – probably picked it up in 8th or 9th grade. It’s well written, fun, sad, cute, tragic, sexy, and beautiful. I’ve read it 3 or 4 times over the years.
The Brothers Bishop by Bart Yates
Very interesting gay fiction.. two brothers, both gay. One responsible, one not. One a high school english teacher, fallen for a student but able to keep his distance. The other, well, doesn’t keep his distance. And all the fun, drama, and consequence to follow.
Haunted: A Novel by Chuck Palahniuk
Twisted and Bizzare and absolutely wonderful.
The Call of the Wild by Jack London
Pretty good read. I think I actually enjoyed the movie more, though.

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
