Books by women all men should read

May 31, 2011

I would be remiss if I didn’t blog about this here, on my author site, as it seems to be tearing through the internet world — the past day or two at least. Over Memorial Day weekend Esquire posted, or rather re-posted, a list of 75 Books All Men Should Read, containing a sole female author. On Joyland’s Facebook and Twitter, Brian Joseph Davis and I wondered if we could crowd-source 75 books or more by women that both men and women felt men should be reading? Many other writers, readers and editors jumped to the cause. Here is that response.

It has since been picked up by The Atlantic, LA Times, The Huffington Post, Book Forum, The New Yorker Book Bench and Entertainment Weekly. Who knew this off-the-cuff thing could pick up such steam? A few final thoughts of mine are here.
