    J.M. Coetzee - Waiting for the Barbarians
    But you, cloudless girl, question of smoke, corn tassel
    You were what the wind was making with illuminated leaves.
    ah, I can say nothing! You were made of everything.

    oh heck! smiles...I was thinking it could be sort of a round robin type of thing where everyone who read the list could continue to refine it, and then refine it, and then refine it, until we all got down to the last one or two books we've all not read. I fear if I pick one---it might be that everyone else but me had read it! ack!

    how about, the heart is a lonely hunter.

    if you've already read it Scheherazade, maybe you can also include tropic of cancer? (if you've not read it that is)
