Housekeeping

by Marilynne Robinson

When Marilynne Robinson published this novel in 1980, she was unknown in the literary world. The book became a classic, and Robinson was hailed as one of the defining American writers of her generation. Housekeeping is the story of Ruthie, a friendless child living in a remote town, orphaned, and with no one but her sister Lucille and their grandmother Sylvia Foster to turn to.

Dictée

by Theresa Hak Chyung Cha

Dictée is the story of several women: the Korean revolutionary Yu Guan Soon, Joan of Arc, Demeter and Persephone, Cha's mother Hyung Soon Huo (a Korean born in Manchuria to first-generation Korean exiles), and Cha herself. The element that unites these women is suffering and the transcendence of suffering, and the book is divided into nine parts structured around the Greek Muses.
