    Whether feminists are writing books or reading them or both, the literary world has long been a place for women to tell their stories, in both fiction and nonfiction. As a young black girl from an impoverished background, Angelou was born with a host of disadvantages that shaped and defined her but never stopped her. Lucky Jim. Victorian novel[ edit ] It was in the Victorian era — that the novel became the leading literary genre in English. Red Dragon by Thomas Harris

    Dombey and Son Charles Dickens, White Teeth Zadie Smith, What modern books will become literary classics? Bridget Jones's diary.

    It's a powerhouse of a novel that I think is a must read for anyone, but feminists in particular. His girlfriend has moved out, he's not employed in one of his all-time-top-five jobs, and he feels like his life is going nowhere. It is to be noted that, despite the high example of novelists of the most profound seriousness, such as TolstoyHenry Jamesand Virginia Woolfthe term novel still, in some quarters, carries overtones of lightness and frivolity. Bonus: None of these novels are set in Brooklyn, and vanishingly few are about writers.
