The New York Public Library shared a list of “southern gothic” novels.
Since I lived in Texas, I was interested in seeing what they included.
Most people consider Texas to be part of the west, but Texas is so big that the eastern part of the state has strong southern influences.
I’ve read several of the listed books; many by Anne Rice, and Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil, of course.
Here is their list: The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter by Carson Mc Cullers Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt A Visitation of Spirits by Randall Kenan A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams Blackwood Farm by Anne Rice Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice “Barn Burning” by William Faulkner Nothing Gold Can Stay by Ron Rash Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia The Violent Bear It Away by Flannery O’Connor Beloved by Toni Morrison NPL defines a Southern Gothic novel: There are some novels I would like to add, in fact, some of them are rather famous and I’m surprised were left off the list.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee With its recent resurgence in popularity, I’m surprised they didn’t include this one.
So, in addition to purchasing the Timeless Literature Collection’s edition of the text, I also downloaded the Random House audiobook (here, on Youtube), and Robert Crayola’s (which I do highly recommend).
…Obviously, university-style readings will never go out of style in this household, haha.
