What to read on here

“What should I read when I get there?” is a question I’m occasionally asked when people tell me they’re going to check out this website for the first time. So, here’s a list of some pieces that have been well received to this point, as well as some pieces I prefer. I would love to see you take this list and try to work on these. I’ve spent 40 years studying American literature and writing, and I’m proud to place all of these pieces into that lexicon.

Let me know when you’re finished with these, Charlie, and I’ll make you up another list.

Much love, beauties.
