Amity Gaige's list

This week Amity Gaige, author of O My Darling and The Folded World, contributed "The List" to the The Week magazine.

One of her titles:
Rabbit Run by John Updike

A gangly young man, married too young and getting his spirit timecarded out of him, makes a run for it. This 1960 novel heralded a whole generation of crumbling marriages. But the writing, as precise and intelligent as it gets, converts the tale into beauty.
Read about the other five books on Gaige's list.
