Jacob Have I Loved (PZ7.P273 J3 1981)
Inspiration Books, Books Jackets, Bible Reading, Books Worth, Books Collection, Katherine Paterson, Favorite Comingofag, Favorite Books, Favorite Author
The Bible reads: "Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated," -Romans 9:13. While most of the relevant literature or books are written in the perspective of Jacob, this book is written in Esau's point of view. As I read the book, I was convinced that this book is definitely one of my favorites because it vividly and dramatically depicts a person's story of painful growth and maturity.
Katherine Paterson is one of my all time favorite authors and Jacob Have I Loved is one of my all time favorite coming-of-age novels!

The Civil War And American Art (Smithsonian American Art Museum) By Eleanor Jones Harvey
Modern Art Notes: Best Books of 2012
"The American Civil War was arguably the first modern war. Its grim reality, captured through the new medium of photography, was laid bare. American artists could not approach the conflict with the conventions of European history painting, which glamorized the hero on the battlefield. Instead, many artists found ways to weave the war into works of art that considered the human narrative..."

Worth Reading, Books Covers, Beautiful Woman, Books Worth, Science Fiction, Film Music Books, Favorite Books, Reading Lists, Kurt Vonnegut
The Sirens of Titan: A Novel by Kurt Vonnegut, is an outrageous romp through space, time, and morality. The richest, most depraved man on Earth, Malachi Constant, is offered a chance to take a space journey to distant worlds with a beautiful woman at his side. Of course there’s a catch to the invitation–and a prophetic vision about the purpose of human life that only Vonnegut has the courage to tell.
