outside reading list

Here are some potential choices for the outside reading assignment, culled from things that have come out in the last few years (some of which I’ve read, some of which I haven’t) and things that are generally significant but didn’t quite fit on the syllabus.  I may add more options here as I think of them, at least until a critical mass of people have already picked their books.

If you’re particularly interested in something that’s not on this list, let me know, and we can potentially talk about it, but the goal of this is to get you to read something you wouldn’t necessarily already have been inclined to read, so I reserve (and am likely to use) the right to veto.  I’m also generally disinclined to have you read volumes of longer series, as I’d rather you have a complete work to talk about.

All that said, you really shouldn’t have trouble finding something on this list that interests you.  If you have no idea where to start, or if you just want specifically-tailored recommendations, by all means talk to me after class or shoot me an email!
