50 Great Books That Will Change Your Life
Autobiography of Red, by Anne Carson
“This book is so original, funny, unexpected, and wildly smart that it revolutionized my sense of narrative possibilities.
It is a portrait of an artistic winged red monster who falls in love, suffers a disastrous romance, travels to South America,
and becomes a photographer. It will make you laugh out loud and break your heart on page after page.”
Recommended by Cristina Garcia, the author of six novels, including the recently released King of Cuba ($26, amazon.com).
