For the last couple of weeks Michelle has been immersed in short stories. This is good because I never could come up with a list of stories I thought she should read! (Remember when I blogged about that months ago?)
For ENC1102 she has read these:
* Hemingway "Cat in the Rain"
* Checkhov "Misery"
* Mansfield "Miss Brill"
* Bambara "The Lesson"
* Tallent "No One’s a Mystery"
* O’Connor "Revelation"
* Carver "Cathedral"
* O’Brien "The Things They Carried"
* Erdrich "The Red Convertible"
She hasn’t liked them all but they’ve been interesting enough that she hasn’t done too much complaining. She wrote an essay about "No One’s a Mystery" and is editing it and expanding it for her research project – which I believe is the last piece of writing for her class.
