Five top books by women writers

Meg Wolitzer's latest novel is The Interestings.

For Chatelaine magazine, she tagged five favorite books by women writers, including:
To the Lighthouse, Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf’s masterpiece (well, one of them), which contains a section called ‘Time Passes,’ seemed to have a completely different feel to it when I read it recently, than it had had when I read it as a much younger person. And that was because, of course, time had passed. This is a lyrical, difficult and highly rewarding book that I am sure will have yet another feel to it when I read it again in a few years.
Read about the other entries on the list.

To the Lighthouse appears among Laura Frost's top 10 best modernist books, the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five unforgettable fathers from fiction, Margaret Drabble's top ten literary landscapes, the American Book Review's 100 best last lines from novels, Amity Gaige's best books, and Adam Langer's best books.
