OSCAR AND LUCINDA by Peter CareyRead about another book on the list.
An eccentric couple of loners in Victorian times find love. The concept of building a glass church for the women you love is just fantastic.
I love the way it is written and you feel people should not judge others just because they’re odd or don’t conform.
