The novels included have been read by Peter, and these are his reviews.Points of View, Various Authors
A book that is favorite of mine includes well know authors of great literature in their short story forms. It is organised in a logic pattern of stories.
Catcher in the Rye, J. D. Salinger
The Prodigy, Herman Hesse(not available at Amazon)
Serious contemplation of the schooling process and the trials and tribulations of a loss of innocence. Seeing the pressures of the school life of the elite and the obvious class references that really have more substance in American life than European.
Siddhartha, Herman Hesse
Rebel and seeker, the essence of a changing life of a man as he ages and goes through the stages of life, that are analogously compared to a river in science, give us a glimpse of Indian faith and the early religious world through a modern type of characterization. You can see the jungle breath in the setting descriptions.
Steppenwolf, Herman Hesse
The Glass Bead Game, Herman Hesse
Narcissus and Goldmund, Herman Hesse
Demian, Herman Hesse
Dr Fisher of Geneva or the Bomb Party, Graham Green
The Europeans, Henry James
Daisy Miller, Henry James
Brave New World, Aldus Huxley
The Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller
Heartbeat: My life with Jack and Neal, Carolyn Cassady
This is a long book about the beat poets and Carolyn's life with them. The other women in Jack's life are unearthed in Carolyn's prose.
Dr. Sax, Jack Kerouac
Amerika, Franz Kafka
The choices of books to read from Dad's shelf mixed with my literary aspirations picked this for an all nighter in 1978. It is incomplete. I wonder about the fact, that it may have been intended by some as self help literature for immigrants to North America, and yet others consider Kafka to be an existentialist.
The story involves a stoker leaving the boat to New York and adventuring in the new city. Some Irish lads confuse him in a hotel and eventually he is left walking around kind of lost and seeing angels in the sky.
A good introduction to the long paragraph style of Kafka. Also has some of his description of architecture which he goes into in great detail.
The Metamorphosis, Franz Kafka
The Trial, Franz Kafka
The Crucible, Arthur Miller
The Stranger, Albert Camus, Translator: Matthew Ward
The Plague, Albert Camus, Translator: Stuart Gilbert
