These books are:
Lavinia, by Ursula le Guin.
the Autograph Man, by Zadie Smith.
Gaudy Night, by Dorothy L. Sayers.
Lord of Light, by Roger Zelazny.
We Need to Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver.
The Color Purple, by Alice Walker.

The Dark Side of Love, by Rafik Shami.
Middlemarch, by George Eliot.
the Line of Beauty, by Alan Hollinghurst.
Cotillion, by Georgette Heyer.
Contest, by Matthew Riley.
Our first episode was so long we had to split it into two. In part one we are overjoyed by Cotillion, mildly bemused by Lavinia, and fail to be captivated by the Dark Side of Love despite the murders and conspiracies.
Next week! Stephanie Meyer, Roger Zelazny, and Matt Riley, Bam!
