We just learned that the esteemed French writer Patrick Modiano has won the Nobel Prize in Literature. We’re not going to lie and say we’re familiar with all of Modiano’s work…in fact, one of us just finished “The Goldfinch” after months of procrastination. HEUCY loves Donna Tartt, but for some reason it took a few months to get past the first hundred pages.
But I digress. Since we’re on the subject of literature, and it is #TBT time, we wanted to post an awesome list we found on a website called “thegreatestbooks.org”…because most of us don’t have the bandwidth to think about these things, and it would be nice to pick up reading again. The editors of the Norwegian Book Clubs, with the Norwegian Nobel Institute, polled a panel of 100 authors around the world, to compile a list of what they consider to be the “best and most central works in world literature.” Here’s the link, put these on your reading list if you’re feeling studious and/or have a vacation coming up:
You may have read some of these books back in high school…just a few years ago. Which brings us to another thought (yep, we couldn’t resist): the HEUCY #HighSchoolReunion dress is now available for pre-order, at http://www.heucy.com! I can say, from personal experience, this is one of the most comfortable and figure-flattering dresses I’ve ever worn.
