Share your favorite literary fiction!

Have you read a literary fiction novel that you enjoyed?  It doesn't have to be a recent publication, just something you liked for one reason or another.  Post a comment with title or author, and I'll add their covers below with a link to our catalog.

Hope to see you in our library someday soon,

  1. I’d like to suggest The Calligrapher’s Daughter by Eugenia Kim (2009). In early-twentieth-century Korea, Najin Han, the privileged daughter of a calligrapher, longs to choose her own destiny, but her stern father is determined to maintain tradition, especially as the Japanese steadily gain control of his beloved country.

  2. A few books that I LOVE, which I guess would be considered literary fiction, are "Memoirs of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden, "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood, & "Girl With a Pearl Earring" by Tracy Chevalier.

    I'm not sure if these qualify as literary fiction, or if they are more romance, but I love the books "Sleepwalking in Daylight" by Elizabeth Flock & "Lessons in Heartbreak" by Cathy Kelly.

  3. I enjoyed the Poisonwood Bible, and John Jake's North and South.

  4. I am not sure if Jodi Picoult is considered commercial fiction or literary, but I enjoy her books.
