If you don't know what this is for, just look at the post on Reading Contest! Or, head over to West of Mars for more information!

Hidden Treasures Reading List:


Henry Miller - The Smile at the Foot of the Ladder
Karel Capek - Absolute at Large
Albert Cossery - Proud Beggars
Harold Maine - If a Man be Mad
Andre Breton - Mad Love

Whiskey Sour by JA Konrath

The Naming by Alison Croggon

Isle of Swords by Wayne Thomas Batson

Beneath the Underdog -- autobiography of Charles Mingus
The Sound & The Fury and As I Lay Dying (have these ever made a bestseller's list? In a perfect world, yes, but otherwise I doubt it).
Wide Sargasso Sea -- Jean Rhys (I'd also recommend her other novels. Depressing as hell, but damn good reads ... especially if you're depressed!)
All I know of love - Katie Schneider
Stigmata: A Novel - Phyllis Alesia Perry
Zahrah the Windseeker - Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu
The Passion of Mary Magdalen and Magdalen Rising by Elizabeth Cunningham
