Into East of Eden

Really, really into East of Eden. Is it a teachable novel? Absolutely. Not sure if I will have room for it in my World Literature curriculum, as I have already 100% decided on one novel (Song of Solomon) and 90% on another (The Big Sleep, and two American novels in a World Literature class are already probably enough. But, we shall see. I love the book.

It's been years since I've read East of Eden, but it's one of my favorites from Steinbeck. If you can squeeze it in, I'm sure your students would appreciate it.

you should try teaching 'what is the what' by dave eggers. it's american, sure, but it's a true story, and written from the point of view of a sudanese lost boy. insanely interesting.

Actually, I already chose it for summer reading for the course! I did it based upon the first 10 pages or so, as well as some very enthusiastic comments from colleagues, but I haven't finished the book. I look forward to picking it up again soon.
