The Catcher in the Rye - Written by the greatest American Writers of all time, J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye is a classic. It’s also one of the most controversial books of all time due to the use of profanity and sexuality throughout the book.
The Mistover Tale - the first scene/page. The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy. My favourite Hardy novel, and arguably my favourite novel ever written. Also seems to have influenced some of Patrick Wolf's music!
