I’ve always considered myself a rather straight forward person, with…

Winner of the 2000 booker prize, this book was actually penned in the 60’s. This book was a welcome reprieve from the more serious books I’ve read so far for this challenge. Penned in 1965, this book contains a surprising and refreshing amount of protofeminism, as there was no feminism in sight at the time…
