Mother Died Today

Or, a reading list to which you can set your watch. It's safe to say that we are pretty psyched about next semester's Law and Literature course:

1. Albert Camus, The Stranger

2. Truman Capote, In Cold Blood

3. Nadine Gordimer, The Pickup

4. Dave Eggers, What is the What

5. Tayeb Salih, Season of Migration to the North

6. William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice (Norton Critical Edition)

7. William Shakespeare, Othello (Norton Critical Edition)

8. Upton Sinclair, The Jungle (The Norton Critical Edition)

At least each book doesn't cost $159 plus tax and become obsolete in six months to be replaced by a new edition so a half dozen professors can laugh all the way to the bank. Woooooooooooo.
