My Survey of English Literature II class went to the bookstore today to buy their books for the semester. I am not sure how much my students enjoyed the experience, but most of them seemed to find something that interested them, and I certainly found something, actually many things, as I always do. Here is what I purchased, in the order that I found them.
Ivan Illich, In the Vineyard of the Text
Jacques Derrida, Ghostly Demarcations
Simone Weil, Waiting for God
Nelson Algren, The Man with the Golden Arm
Ivan Illich, Gender
William Golding, The Paper Men
Salman Rushdie, Step Across this Line
