Sylvia Townshend Warner - Lolly Willowes. Good so far.
Chris Ware - Jimmy Corrigan. I'm finding this a chore.
Elizabeth Gaskell - North and South. I read the first half a while ago and liked it - now planning to actually finish it.
Somewhat recently finished:
Emily Bronte - Wuthering Heights. What a weird book. It's almost impossible to take at face value but it's interesting to read from a modern perspective. It's funny that all the films end halfway through since the back half is in many ways the more interesting part.
Helen DeWitt - The Last Samurai. Really good, would appeal to some of the nerds here.
Catherynne M. Valente - Radiance. An alt-history thing that imagines the early Hollywood era overlapping with the colonialization of the solar system. A cool concept with an interesting approach to storytelling, but the plot sort of falls apart unfortunately.
Ellen Raskine - The Mysterious Disappearance of Leon (I Mean Noel). By the author of The Westing Game, offers similar pleasure.
Jocelyn Brooke - The Military Orchid. Reread; still excellent. More people should read him.
Anthony Horowitz - House Of Silk. Retro Sherlock Holmes novel. The plot's a little silly but it was entertaining enough, and most of the pastiche is reasonably well done.
Henry Green - Back. Not his strongest book but still good.
Joni Murphy - Double Teenage. This really wants to be Chris Kraus but doesn't quite nail it.
Jack London - The Scarlet Plague. I moved to the SF Bay Area recently so figured I should read about it being decimated by an epidemic. I'm not sure there's much reason to read this otherwise.
