Joanna Russ's The Female Man, which we're reading right now for beer_marmalade. I'm having a really hard time getting into it?! Which is disappointing b/c I loved How to Suppress Women's Writing, although that wasn't fiction. So if anyone wants to leave comments about why you do/don't love Female Man, lmk. It might help me continue reading!
Kokoro by Natsume Soseki. This translation was done by Edwin McClellan. This book is the first in this box, which I won from Con or Bust this year. The protag is a university student in Tokyo, who makes friends with an older, pretty depressed man. The story takes place at the end of the Meiji era; I think it was published about 1912. 50 pages in, I became pretty certain how the story's going to end, & purposely spoiled myself for it because I haven't been in the greatest head space lately. Overall, I like it. And of course, I ship protag/Sensei.
