20,000 lieues sous les mers by Jules Verne
Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon, L'Histoire de l'oeil by Georges Bataille and 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez. A big disappointment: Beloved by Toni Morrison.
Many. Especially with more complex oeuvres it's really important to revisit masterpieces to be able to grasp something you couldn't possibly have before. Although I do keep rereading Jean Genet and Georges Bataille just because they're so darn hot.
Hi there, I'm a French Lit Master's candidate looking to get my modern literature fix. I love the idea of book clubs, but hate the typical Lady Chatterly's Lover-type fare. Pynchon and Faulkner are my personal gods.
