The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood.  incredibly terrific and so far ahead of its time.

following up on Kat's suggestions: I thought Salvage the Bones was very good and very well executed as a derivative of Faulkner.  I found Truth and Beauty to be very painful. it could have been edited a bit - so much of the same misery over and over. 

 

next up is Atwood's Surfacing.

I've been reading a lot of Steinbeck these last couple years.  I'm currently on his nonfiction work "America and Americans" and will promptly move onto "A Russian Journal"

Me too! So far that is. I'd love to hear what you think of M Train. I think she's brilliant.

she's definitely brilliant! i thought she veered a little too off-track at times, but maybe that's because she's just so much smarter/more creative/more all-knowing than me. B) my to-read list expanded from all the titles she dropped within the book. it was a sad book though - you can really feel her sense of loss.
