Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12448 comments So, the Annie Proulx "Stories" above, is Close Range: Wyoming Stories?

Joanna (walker) | 1458 comments So for this task, we can only read the books listed on this list?


message 5: by Cait (new)

Cait Poytress (caitertot) The list says Flannery O'Connor: Stories. Does that mean only her short stories, or do her two short novels The Violent Bear It Away and Wise Blood count?


message 6: by Sam (new)

Sam (archieleach9) | 205 comments Only the books that are on the list are acceptable...however, if the list says stories (novels are okay) or poems, any collections will do.

Cait Poytress (caitertot) Thanks, Sam!

I'm sorry. Do you mean by this that the entry

Annie Proulx - Stories

could mean novels by Annie Proulx as well as any of her collections of stories?

Rebekah (bekalynn) | 4355 comments Would we get combo points for reading one of the poets on this list?
