The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Jay Gatsby had once loved beautiful, spoiled Daisy Buchanan, then lost her to a rich boy. Now, mysteriously wealthy, he is ready to risk everything to woo her back. This is the story of the fabulously wealthy Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when the New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession.” A tale of America in the 1920s, The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.–From publisher description.

Beloved by Toni Morrison

Set in rural Ohio several years after the Civil War, this profoundly affecting chronicle of slavery and its aftermath is widely considered to be Toni Morrison’s greatest novel.

Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe’s new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. (From the publisher.)
