Recommendations that come to mind: Mrs. Dalloway and/or The Waves-… - What if the noise is nothing but sound?

Recommendations that come to mind:

Mrs. Dalloway and/or The Waves- Virginia Woolf
Middlesex - Jeffrey Eugenides
An Acceptable Time - Madeleine L'Engle (This is particularly true for Samuel, who's had my copy since high school :-P)
The Unbearable Lightness of Being - Milan Kundera
Maus (These are among the few graphic novels I've ever been able to get through)
Rubyfruit Jungle - Rita Mae Brown

All that I have planned to read this summer so far:

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead - Tom Stoppard (I started this a few weeks ago and had to put it down thanks to my workload. I'm going to start over again/finish it this summer)
The Brothers Karamazov - Fyodor Dostoevsky
a reread of The Unbearable Lightness of Being
No Exit - Sartre

Any recommendations/etc. for me? What's everyone else reading this summer?

Current Mood: angrydisaffected
Current Music: City Bird - Of Montreal

Mario and I were discussing R&G the other night! Very good pick, you will loooove it.

I've yet to compose a summer list, even though I guess summer is actually very close. It sure doesn't feel like it.

I really love what I've read so far. I'd love to see it performed.
