Tiv's Introduction (The Individual Voice)

So here's yet another reading project I'm joining that has no time limit. I've only read one of the books so far, Disgrace, (which is disgraceful, I know). I loved it and would like to read it again to remind myself why I loved it so much. I don't have a very good memory for movies or books. I think it's because I go into such a deep, dream-like trance that afterwards, it's like awakening from a dream. It's all kind of fuzzy and gets fuzzier with time.

This is a really nice selection of books, so I think I might actually read the specific books by each author, though I may also read some others, say, by Ian McEwan, J.M. Coetze or Roddy Doyle, having them already on my shelf. I have read every single book by Margaret Atwood except the one on the list. And I may exempt myself from Schindler's List. No offense to the Nazis, but I saw the movie and I am not interested in reading about the one exception among them, heroic as he was. There should have been more.

Anyway, what a nice project to share with other booklovers! I have no idea yet where I will start.
