Fifteen of the hottest affairs in literature

Kyle Minor is the author of two collections of stories: In the Devil’s Territory (2008) and Praying Drunk (2014).

One entry on his list of fifteen of the hottest affairs in literature, as shared at The Huffington Post:
Possession by A.S. Byatt: A mystery about a secret love affair between poets not unlike Robert Browning and Christina Rosetti, a historical love story chased by fierce British scholars, and offered in a tantalizing stew of diaries, letters, fairy tales, myths, and, most of all, Victorian romance.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Possession also appears on Emily Temple's list of the fifty greatest campus novels ever written, John Mullan's lists of ten of the best fossils in literature, ten of the most memorable libraries in literature, ten of the best fictional poets, ten of the best locks of hair in fiction, ten of the best graveyard scenes in fiction, and ten of the best lawyers in literature, and on Rachel Syme's list of the ten most attractive men in literature, Christina Koning's critic's chart of six top romances, and Elizabeth Kostova's top ten list of books for winter nights.
