Where to start?

"The Horseman on the Roof" by Jean Giono

Short stories by Maupassant

How about poets in English?

There is a very good series of paperbacks called "Everyman's Poetry", one book for each poet, which you can get through amazon.co.uk for not much more than the cost of postage. (Click on the "new and used" button).

England, like Persia, is famous above all for her poets.

Dear Don Cox, these are just great! I'll get them, you suggested some very good books last year as well, thank you! :)

Don Cox said...

I can't remember what I suggested last year. I hope it wasn't the same ones!

Behi said...

No, not the same, Orwell's works mostly.

My three favorites (titles):

- Motherless Brooklyn
- The time (in?) between
- The Ha-Ha

Simple novels, but I like them :)
